A Day in the Life of Tweens & Teens

Posted By Administration, Monday, February 12, 2018

An Eye-Opening Discussion with Dr. Cara Natterson, Dr. Gail Dines, Jonathan Cristall Esq.

Come join us for this important event that will provide you with insight, information, solutions, and a passion for building a healthy generation of kids.

No doubt, it’s a hard time to be a kid. Teens today are bombarded with difficult and ever-changing sexual messages. As a result, it has never been more challenging to parent or mentor kids into healthy adulthood.

As their access to technology widens, young people internalize sexualized messaging which affects their behavior, attitudes, expectations, brain development, and undermines their capacity to build healthy relationships.

THE STATISTICS ARE STAGGERING

  • Social media use is linked to increased rates of anxiety, depression, and poor sleep, and the younger boys are when they access porn, the more problems they have developing empathy, intimate relationships, and friendships with peers
  • A study by the American Psychological Association found that the more girls consume hypersexualized images, the more likely they are to be depressed, anxious, isolated, engage in risky sexual behavior, and abuse drugs and alcohol
  • On average, boys first view hardcore porn at 11-13 years old of age via Snapchat, Instagram, and free internet sites
  • Free porn sites get more visitors each month than Netflix, Amazon, and Twitter combined
  • 88% of scenes in the most watched porn contain sexual, physical, and verbal violence against women

During A Day in the Life of Tweens & Teens, international expert and educator Dr. Gail Dines, renowned pediatrician Dr. Cara Natterson, and veteran prosecutor for the City of LA Jonathan Cristall, will discuss the role parents, grandparents, caregivers, educators, and health experts can play in helping our next generation build resistance and resilience to this hypersexualized culture.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • You will better understand the impact of porn on brain functioning, emotional and social development, and the long-term health risks
  • You will leave with a practical toolkit for helping kids navigate this toxic digital culture
  • You will be introduced to Culture Reframed's robust online Parents Program that helps parents build resilience and resistance in young people to hypersexualized porn culture.


Dr. Gail Dines is internationally acclaimed as the leading expert on how pornography shapes the emotional, social, and cognitive development of young people. Her latest book, Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality, has been translated into five languages, and adapted into a documentary film. Gail is the Founder and President of Culture Reframed, the first health-based non-profit organization in the US to respond to the pornography crisis by providing education and support for parents, educators and health professionals.

Dr. Cara Natterson is a pediatrician, consultant, and New York Times bestselling author of The Care and Keeping of You, a three-book series with over six million copies in print. In August, she launched Guy Stuff, the boy counterpart to her girl books. Cara is also the founder of Worry Proof Consulting, which gives open-ended time to discuss everything from medical questions and biology basics to child development and parenting issues. And she is mom to a fourteen-year-old daughter and twelve-year-old son.

Jonathan Cristall Esq. is the founder of What They Don't Teach Teens and a veteran prosecutor for the City of Los Angeles. He is also a certified Violence Prevention Specialist as well as a husband and father to three sons. Growing up, Jonathan was once a deeply troubled teen himself.

Santta Monica Rocks

Posted By Kathy Zurich-Lunsford, Friday, December 1, 2017
Join the Citywide Community Art Treasure Hunt: Santa Monica Rocks!

Are your kids playing Santa Monica Rocks? Here's how to play: Paint, draw, stencil, wrap, glue something on, or otherwise embellish a rock. Write #SantaMonicaRocks on the back (a black Sharpie works well). If possible, protect your rock creation with a spray or paint-on shellac like Mod Podge (plain white glue also does the trick). Now, hide your beautiful stone somewhere in Santa Monica, like at a park, a favorite cafe, or even your front yard. You can also post a picture of it online on our Instagram @santamonicarocks or join and post on our Facebook group and give some clues as to its location. If YOU find a rock, take a photo and post it to our Facebook group or Instagram, then hide it somewhere else or keep it and replace it with a rock of your own design. 

For more information, go to our Facebook page (facebook.com/groups/santamonicarocks) and follow-us on Instagram @santamonicarocks. 

- From Debra Bard Javerbaum and Lynne B. Clark, both Artists at Ten Women Gallery on Montana (http://www.tenwomen.org) and both Lincoln and Franklin parents

Lincoln Field Renovation - Synthetic Turf - Permit Access Only

Posted By Robert M. Bernacchi, Monday, August 7, 2017

I recently learned of the City’s and/or School District’s decision to re-do the surface of the athletic filed at Lincoln School with artificial turf. In addition, I have been told that the intention is to make the field available on a permit-only basis. 

I am a tax-paying resident of Santa Monica. I have three kids in the SMMUSD, one at Lincoln. I vote in local elections and donate money regularly to the school district.

I am vehemently opposed to this athletic field, the only one of its kind, being transformed into a synthetic, pay-for-use space. The cons of artificial turf are too long to list but include environmental issues, health issues currently being studied, water runoff, temperature, injury, and so on. 

But with no open, public access, where does a resident take their son or daughter to play catch, kick the ball around, jog on proper flooring safe from traffic and other?

Can anyone verify that a.) the turf will be synthetic, and b.) that it will have permit-only access? And what can we do to reverse this decision?
