SCREENAGERS: The Movie

Mr Joshua Liong
Principal Trainer, Focus on the Family Singapore
 
 
  

Over the last decade, Joshua has equipped parents in the areas of relationships, media literacy and values formation. As a certified parent coach, he was involved in the Malaysian government’s development of parenting programmes and national family policies.

Joshua and his children enjoy a close and meaningful relationship. They relish cooking together, playing tennis and watching silly YouTube videos. He believes that media is neither good nor bad, but how we use it to enrich our lives will make family media experience a joy. He was also recently a guest on 938NOW's Parenting Moments with Susan Ng.

SPEAKERS

Can I register more than one child for SCREENed?

Yes, if your spouse OR second child (recommended age: 11-14yo) would like to join you, they may do so at an additional fee of $10.

e.g. 1 Parent-Child pair + 1 Parent ($40 + $10) OR 1 Parent-Child pair + 1 Child ($40 + $10)

My child is younger/older than the recommended age range of 11 to 14 years old. Can he/she still attend?

The programme for SCREENed is designed for parents with children between the recommended age range. For children under 11, you may need to provide more guidance at certain parts of the workshop for him/her to fully benefit from the programme. We would not advise for parents to bring children older than 15 years old as the programme is designed for children of a younger age group. However, we will leave the decision to the parent.

Can I bring my friend’s child along with my child and I for the workshop?

The planned activities are intended for interaction within the context of a family. If you have someone else’s child with you, he/she may feel left out when you’re interacting with your child. We would recommend for your friend to bring his/her child to attend as a family so that they can practise the lessons at home.  

What is the programme like?

We will be screening the award-winning docu-movie Screenagers with activities and conversations weaved into the programme. There will also be Q&A session and an opportunity to make a family screen time agreement with your child. Do come with a willingness to share, listen and communicate with your child through the activities and conversations.
