PARENT TALK TUESDAY 24th, 7:30pm  All Welcome.

‘Raise a Digital Child Safely, while developing a Resilient Digital Personality, in today’s Digital World’

 

The following topics will be covered as part of the presentation:

Personal Information, Digital Footprint, Online Reputation Management, Inappropriate content, Cyberbullying, Sexting, Sextortion, Passwords, Malware, Why Apps Are Free, Online Privacy, New concept of Stranger Danger, Online Child Exploitation and General Safety Information.

 

We would kindly ask, as a parent that you would make every effort to attend our evening presentation. The talk will emphasise the importance of communication between a child and a parent. Children are now constantly in danger of putting themselves in situations where content can be shared or even broadcast live online. This can have incredible long term implications which children at present do not seem to fully grasp. Children and teens currently are being exposed to inappropriate content from a very young age – much of which is going on unknown to parents. They play games and use apps which are not suitable for their age. The sharing of inappropriate images is becoming a social norm for them. This is having a real world change on their attitudes and behaviours. Add alcohol or any form of an intoxicant in to this mix and it can prove a recipe for total disaster. Once inhibitions are lowered, those who are influenced by their online exposure may not even fully comprehend the meaning of consent.

Parents can play a far greater role than they realise. However, it is only in collaboration with the child can any of these serious issues be addressed.  We look forward to seeing you.
