The Instructor: Shannon Buckels

What apps are on your child’s phone? What social media are they using? What age should a child have a smartphone? Digital technology is an excellent tool to make and enhance social relationships, however, it can also expose our children to risk.

This class will discuss:

• The current impact of bullying in schools
• Current apps kids are using and what you need to know about them
• How to manage screen time.
• “Sexting” and online predators
• How to set expectations and consequences
• How to monitor online activity and find secret Instagram accounts
• How to talk to your child about pornography
• Parental controls and privacy settings
