Reminder! Parenting in a Digital World presentation is TONIGHT.

Please join us in the library TONIGHT from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm for Parenting in a Digital World, an Internet safety presentation for parents of students in grades 3-7, lead by Safer Schools Together.

With society heading in a direction of being constantly connected to technology, what do we need to know as parents to protect our children and teach them responsible and appropriate use of technology? The parameters of rules and expectations that you put in place at home will undoubtedly guide their behaviour in the years to come. Please join us for an informative presentation that will cover the following topics and more!

  • Social Media Update – The most current apps & trends in their social media lives
  • Pick Your Battles! – You will have to balance the yin with the yang, promote independence whilst taking a strong stance on certain subjects
  • Current Research – Brain development & technology, violent video games
  • Digital Footprint and Reputation – With their future approaching, recruiters and employers are taking note – What will they find?

Please RSVP to mcbrideelementary@gmail.com. This parent session is intended for parents of students in Grades 3-7.

PLEASE NOTE: Babysitting is not available this evening.
