Understanding Our Teens and Tweens: Social Media

Sunday, May 5th, 7-8:30pm

201 Market Street

Lititz, PA

Being a parent is difficult enough, but Social Media has added another dimension to parenting in the 21st Century. Just when we think we understand the terms and lingo, another social media fad is born. Are you a parent, grandparent, or someone who works with tweens and teens? Do you want to keep up with the latest social media information, but tired of being overwhelmed?


Join blogger, speaker, and educator Matt Bergman, Ed.M. as he discusses the basics of Social Media, new trends, and how adults can be prepared. Whether you are new to Social Media or a savvy veteran, this workshop will have answers for you to help our kids navigate through the uncharted waters of Social Media.


This free workshop will be held at Lititz United Methodist Church on Sunday, May 5, 2013 from 7 pm to 8:30 pm in the Children’s Church. Please register with the Church Office at 626-2710 or by contacting Matt at mattbergman14@gmail.com
