2017-18 Conversations that Matter series; Session 3

MCCHS Conversations that Matter: Raising Resilient Teens

In an effort to partner with our families and community, Marian Central Catholic High School is hosting a quarterly series on various topics that are important and impact our students.

This third session in this series will review the dangers pre-teens and teens face while engaging with social media and texting. This session will include a discussion on the recent data about teen use of their devices, benefits and dangers of social media, legal ramifications of certain online and texting behaviors, as well as the effects on both senders and receivers.

Specific focus will be on:

- Sexting

- Harrassment

- Cyberstalking

- Online Preditors

We will have two expert speakers to address this topic:

Patrick Kenneally, McHenry County State's Attorney

Dan Wilbrandt, McHenry County Assistant State's Attorney and Deputy Chief of the Criminal Division

Feel free to click on the speaker's name for a brief bio about her.

We will also have a priest, Father Carl Beekman from Sts. Peter and Paul, Cary, that will address the Church's perspective on this issue.

Please join us as we talk about these tough issues and look for real solutions together.

>>> This session is designed for BOTH parents and students.
