Talking to Tw/eens About Technology
Digital Self-Defense for Parents & Caregivers
Overwhelmed by Apps, Social Networking and Digital Devices?
This seminar is designed to help you navigate the dilemmas presented by the digital world our kids inhabit. We'll get an idea of which devices do what, an overview of the current digital threats to children (cyberbullying, online predators, oversharing, inappropriate pictures) and make a better plan for digital life management. We'll also discuss a different strategy for talking to our kids about their digital lives.
