Our children are going online at ever-younger ages, and they need our guidance in keeping their cyberspace journey safe and fulfilling. As physical and mental well-being are intrinsically tied to one’s cyberspace experience, it is important for parents and guardians to play an active role in their child’s online experiences, just as they do in the offline world. In the post-COVID new normal, where children’s routine activities continue online and internet dangers multiply, cyber-parenting is even more relevant. This webinar discusses what cyber-parenting is, why it’s so important, and basic cyber-parenting guidelines to keep your child(ren) safer in cyberspace.
- Defining cyber-parenting and understanding why it is necessary
- Know the internet dangers that your children are potentially exposed to
- Learn 5 key (and simple) cyber-parenting strategies
- How to get started (or put into motion) your cyber-parenting plan
