The majority of kids in grades 6 and beyond have social networking accounts and are actively networking with others using various forms of technology (i.e. apps, messaging, etc.). At this stage, it’s imperative for them to know that there are consequences for their actions, as once they send, save or share, their information is out there – and stays out there – forever. The following is an example of what is covered during this session:
- What is personal information? What are privacy settings?
- Social Networking including current trends
- Interactive gaming rules and thoughts
- Texting/smartphone usage including app trends, appropriateness and tracking
- Technology tattoos and creating a favorable, positive online brand

Our kids are doing WHAT? What can I do to protect them? What apps should I be worried about? Is social networking safe? Is my child being cyberbullied? What’s texting? Sexting? What’s next? It’s often overwhelming being a parent today in our technology-driven society. Keeping up with the latest trends and dangers can often seem like an impossible task. Katie will help you navigate the digital waters and let you know what’s new, what’s now, and what’s next when it comes to your children and technology, and provides parents with proactive initiatives to keep kids safe.
