Helping our children navigate social media

Date: January 7, 2016 Author: PAC Fundraising Categories: Announcements 0

Are you wondering if and when social media will have an impact on your child? Having a hard time keeping up with all the new applications and websites that your children are going to be exposed to? What can we do as parents to proactively help our children navigate social media safely?

  • Parenting the Mobile Device Child
  • The Changing Landscape of Social Media and 
  • Cyber bullying

Jesse will also being holding sessions with all the Dorothy Lynas intermediate students (Grades 4 to 7), so he can share what he learned and heard talking to our children!

 Jesse’s goal for us is to learn how we can help our children become smart, aware and ethical social media participants who communicate a positive message and build an online reputation that will help them into the next stages of life.

On a personal note, I have attended 3 of Jesse’s parenting sessions and each time has been very helpful when it comes to learning what is going on in our ever changing digital environment. I now have the knowledge and language to have meaningful conversations with my children about how they use their devices and how to stay safe online. Hope to see you at the session.
