During these difficult times of social distancing and self-quarantine, there has been a dramatic increase in online activities by children, and a heightened concern by parents and educators for their safety. Kids and teens are unable to go to school, or participate in sports or other activities, and instead spend many hours in the online world. This webinar will provide ICAC members and other child protection professionals with tools and resources to help parents and educators create a safer environment for all children.
How many times have you heard someone say, “I’m so glad that we didn’t have smart phones/internet/technology like this when I was younger!”? We already recognize the risks, and therefore understand the need for continuous safety discussions with youth. This webinar will cover preparation for basic internet safety presentations in your schools and communities, with heavy emphasis on resources for content, ideas for engagement, and more in-depth safety resources for both parents and youth.
