Childcare available at this event. See below.
The parent or caregiver of a child is the number one indicator in whether the child will be safe online, or whether they will be vulnerable to risk! This presentation educates and empowers parents to keep children safe in the digital age. Social media, video games, movies, music and other forms of media and technology are addressed. The presentation highlights current digital trends and teaches parents how to: proactively participate in their children’s social media experience, how to communicate effectively with children of all ages regarding online safety, and how to utilize parental controls and additional protection measures to keep kids safe online. Some additional topics covered include: screen time, appropriate ages for social media/video games, internet addiction in children, online pornography, cyber bullying and online predators.
Resources for having positive, proactive conversations with children of all ages regarding online safety are shared, in addition to instructions for setting up parental controls on devices and using filtering/monitoring software to minimize children’s exposure to unsafe individuals and explicit, violent and/or adult content.
This event offers childcare! Childcare drop off (infant-high school) is provided by Children’s Church workers of North Albany Community Church. Drop off is 1:00-1:30pm. The presentation will begin at 1:30pm.
