Hundreds of Crown Heights community parents gathered Tuesday night at the Jewish Children Museum for the launch event of MUST Crown Heights, a new organization addressing the use of technology by youngsters and offering practical solutions to tech and kids.
The gathering featured opening remarks by Mrs. Simcha Minkowitz, a mother and businesswoman, and Crown Heights MUST coordinator. Followed by Rabbi Mordechai Lipskier, who shared his experience as a participating parent, community physician Dr. Eli Rosen, and Mrs. Michal Klerer, the founder of MUST.
Mothers Unite to Stall Technology (MUST) is a grassroots initiative that has been very successful in several communities and is now starting in our community. The idea is that mothers of each class make a pact with each other to hold off on buying their children personal devices with internet capabilities.
The goal is for each group to stall the progression of technology for as many years as they possibly can. And for those of us who’ve already given our children devices, there are pacts for limiting internet and social media access, etc.
