This workshop is intended for the parents of children aged 8-18 who are active online.
Our children are connected to the world in ways that we aren’t aware of, in ways we don’t always comprehend. How can you know that your child is engaging in appropriate online activity if you don’t know where they are making connections and with whom?
In this fast paced online world that we live in, where the apps are always changing and it’s easier than ever for kids and teens to have a covert social life, what can we do as parents to support our kids to make good choices and to recognize when they are in over their heads?
She Thrives Pyschotherapist Liane Wood will guide you through how to have meaningful conversations with your children to help them understand how to keep themselves out of harms way while interacting online. She will also share what to look out for if you suspect that your child has come up against something that is beyond your child’s ability to manage, and what resources exist to support them through any emotional or pyschological consequences.
We will be joined by Detective Pat Kellar who will support the evening by providing practical tips and advice on how to keep your kids safe by taking preventative action.
This is a free event, however we will be collecting donations to support the G-MAY Project, as they are launching a pilot project for treatment of young victims of sexual assault and their families.
Please register in advance as spaces are limited.
