Tackling Teen Topics series opens Wednesday at Avon library
VAIL CO, Colorado
A free documentary kicks off “Tackling Teen Topics,” a three-week film series designed to help parents understand modern teens.
“Growing Up Online” is a PBS Frontline documentary that looks at the Internet’s impact on adolescence through the eyes of teens and their parents. It’s being presented by the Eagle Valley Library District and the Eagle River Youth Coalition on Tuesday in Avon.
Nearly every teen in America is on the Internet every day, socializing with friends and strangers alike. This generation has a radically different notion of privacy and personal space, and have created issues their parents never had to deal with.
“Growing Up Online” kicks off “Tackling Teen Topics,” a three-week film series geared toward teens and their parents.
In addition to “Growing Up Online,” the series will feature “Cry for Help” on April 12. That film features first-person stories from adolescents confronting depression, anxiety and mental illness.
Concluding the series on April 19 will be “The World’s Most Dangerous Drug,” in which National Geographic correspondent Lisa Ling goes inside the methamphetamine epidemic to find out what makes the drug so addictive and destructive.
All films start at 6:30 p.m. in the library’s community room. Refreshments will be provided. All film screenings are free and open to the public. Films may not be appropriate for all audiences.
