Parent Information Program on
Mark your calendars! On Tuesday, November 10, the St. Francis Fathers' Club and the Guidance and Counseling Department are hosting a Parent Workshop on Protecting Children in a Hyper Digital Age. The program will start at 7 PM in the Spartan Theater.
Did you know that 43% of kids have been bullied online? One 1 in 10 victims will inform a parent or trusted adult of their abuse. 1 in 25 youths received on online sexual solicitation in which the solicitor tried to make offline contact. 15% of teens using cell phones say that they have received sexually suggestive nude images of someone they know via text.
Liz Repking, Cyber Safety Consulting Founder and Presenter, is the mother of three children and has spent the majority of her career working as a technology consultant. In her program she will discuss the following topics: dangers children are susceptible to online, teens and sexting, popular apps and how to use them safely, quick and easy settings to increase child safety online, setting restrictions on iPhones, iPads, iPods and other electronic devices, and cell phone monitoring.
We strongly encourage all parents to attend this program.
