The Internet can be a wonderful place to learn, shop, play games, and talk to your friends. Unfortunately, there are also predators online who may try to harm you. In order to be safe online, it’s important for you and your kids to be aware of the dangers.
Many kids are confident that they know how to be safe online. However, there are several reasons why kids are often more at risk. They may not always think about the consequences of their actions, which can cause them to share too much information about themselves. Kids also are sometimes specifically targeted by predators and cyberbullies.
If you’re a parent or guardian, you can help to keep your kids safe by talking to them about their Internet use, teaching them about online dangers, and learning everything you can about the Internet so you can make informed decisions.
The Dark Side of Social Media is designed for any parent or guardian who wants to learn how to keep their kids safe online. The goal of this free seminar is to provide tools and techniques to help children stay safe in today’s ever-changing digital world.
