    Solana Beach School District  -  “Pop Culture & the Noise It Creates”  with Commander Paul LeBaron

    Our kids live in a world different than anything we have experienced.  Consider that anybody born after August 6, 1991, does not know life without the Internet. When we talk to our kids, we hope the message gets through. The “internal noise” (Movies, Video Games, Internet, Music, Television, Texting, Sexting, Emojis, Online Challenges) that comes from Pop Culture is a major deterrent.  The objective of this presentation is to learn to improve communication between adults and kids by identifying the “noise” that is generated from popular culture that makes such communication difficult.  You will learn that it is not enough to know WHAT your kids are listening to ... you must know ABOUT the things your kids are listening to.  Don’t miss out on this important presentation that will be held on
