Workshop Evaluations / Testimonials

“I attended a workshop this morning that was sure an eye-opener for me today. It was called Disconnect To Reconnect The Impact of Technology on Children. It is time for me as a responsible parent to start evaluating our use of technology in our home. It is disconnecting us as a family and can be very damaging to my children in their future. We have become so dependant on technology today; and it is and can be very harmful to our childrens' healthy brain development, behaviour and learning. There are so many negative impacts that happen when children are addicted to technology at a young age. I WILL NOT BE ONE OF THOSE PARENTS WHO RAISES AN UNHEALTHY CHILD BECAUSE OF THIS!!! So from today, I vow to spend less time on the internet, to spend more time with my children, to play with them, to teach them, and to nurture them by turning OFF THE INTERNET for a period of time during the day, and to start a plan to raise my children to be healthy, and full functioning adults in today's technology society!!”

“I positively LOVED your presentation that day! The fact you're a fellow BC girl just proves that when it comes to thinking outside the box, us coastal people have what it takes! You confirmed many things I've been thinking or talking to people about myself, as both a mother and a computer tech. You also confirmed what my own Mother used to say when she'd be teaching, "first, get the wiggles out, then they will sit still and listen to what you have to say". Needless to say, I had a big grin on my face for much of your presentation here in Kelowna back in August.”

Author

“I was worried about using so much technology when teaching students, but didn’t kow how or where to draw the line. No one has ever put all the pieces of the puzzle together, and offered so much in the way of alternatives as this course. Thank you Cris!”

Teacher

“I think anyone who has any involvement with children – parent, teacher, counsellor, pastor should all have access to this information and take your workshops! Thank you so much!!!”
