Social Media Awareness And Parenting The Digital World

In Partnership with Safer Schools Together, SD 59 is presenting a series of presentations for parents and the community. 

The 90 minute parent presentation will focus on all things digital. Your child in Middle/High School has now entered into the peak of their digital media lives and is rapidly developing their personal identity with cell phone in hand and you need to be prepared. Family rules, parental controls and developing a family tech plan will be outlined as well as recommendations for monitoring your tween/teen’s digital life.

As a parent, you must lead the charge as a digital role model and help your child develop a strong digital citizenship foundation while reminding them that their digital tattoo is a reflection of their real and online selves. At this age, they will encounter situations that will challenge their independence, including cyberbullying, cyberexclusion, the dangers of anonymity, privacy, sharing intimate images, and inappropriate websites. Parents have an important role to play in providing support and guidance during critical periods. A snapshot of current trends and concerning apps will be provided to equip you in your digital parenting strategy.
