Establishing Safe, Caring and Respectful Digital Communities (90-minute presentation followed by a 30-minute Q&A)
As a parent, you lead the charge as a digital role model. Help your child develop a strong digital citizenship foundation while reminding them that their digital tattoo reflects their real and online selves. Your child in Middle/High School has now entered the peak of their digital media lives where cell phone ownership doubles, video game use explodes, and social media use becomes problematic. Parents have an important role to play in providing support and guidance during critical periods. This session will cover recommendations for family rules, parental controls, family tech plans, as well as suggestions for monitoring your tween/teen’s digital life. A snapshot of current trends and concerning apps will be provided to equip you in your digital parenting strategy.
