Protecting Kids Online
Parenting in the Digital Age
Do you feel overwhelmed by the increasing dangers facing your kids online? Parenting in the digital age is one of the most challenging jobs any of us will ever have. We want to help!
During this workshop, you’ll gain practical knowledge and tips to strengthen your family’s online safety strategy, such as:
Kid-safe searching solutions.
What age is appropriate for social media use, and the dangers that go with it.
Using parental controls and monitoring to provide accountability and balance.
Setting boundaries for the technology your family uses.
How to talk to your kids about sensitive subjects such as explicit content and predators.
We are in this together! Come ready to learn.
Jesse and Sarah Siegand started Parents Who Fight in 2015 as a social media campaign to bring awareness to parents about the dangers kids encounter online every day. They have been married over 19 years and have two middle school boys. Out of concern for their own children, they began researching what they could do to protect their family online. Their research led them to a national conference where they learned from top experts in online safety.
