PARENT INTERNET SAFETY NIGHT
Does your child know how to use your smartphone and computer better than you? We have parents tell us this all the time.
Knowledge is power!
Come join us for a program by the Arkansas Attorney General’s Office and Cabot Public Schools Technology Department, BJ Brooks, about Internet Safety.
The program will include information on cyber bullying, avoiding risky behaviors online, and how to protect your child against online predators.
