Cyber Education Training - Thursday, September 26, 2019

CALLING ALL PARENTS!  Are you having regular conversations in the house around texting, social media, YouTube, TikTok, Netflix and Internet Hoaxes (like Momo)? Have you ever wondered if you are setting the right rules around technology use?  Do you wonder if other parents allow their children more or less access? If any of these questions have crossed your mind…this is the session for YOU!

  • About 80% of children and teens say they have communicated with an online stranger through games and social media, but less than 10% tell a parent.

  • 60% say they wish they were less distracted by technology but don't tell parents for fear the technology will be taken away.

  • Almost all children report seeing things online those make them feel uncomfortable from content to hoaxes to digital drama. Less than 10% tell their parents!
