This Parent/Caregiver session focuses on all things digital. Your child in Middle/High School has now entered the peak of their digital media lives where cell phone ownership doubles, video game use explodes, and social media use becomes problematic. This session will cover recommendations for family rules, parental controls, family tech plans, as well as suggestions for monitoring your tween/teen’s digital life.

At this age, children encounter situations that will challenge their independence. Parents/Caregivers have an important role to play in providing support and guidance during critical periods. A snapshot of current trends and concerning apps and platforms will be provided to equip you in your digital parenting strategy.

I would recommend these trainings to any parent. It’s wonderful to receive current information in a supportive environment. So many parents struggle with similar issues and it’s very affirming to connect and to support one another. Community and connection are vital, especially during these difficult times in our world. This is time very well spent.

A very informative and well laid out parent session. It covered many subjects without being overwhelming, gave advice, and provided helpful tips.
I would and will attend again, because it is almost impossible for a parent to know everything in this fast-paced world of social media, etc.

I loved this training session! It didn’t have the usual “keep your kids offline” rhetoric, but rather helped with tools to keep them safe while using it!

I learned a lot from the session! Being a parent, we feel that we know everything and can control the things that our children do. But this session has given me a lot of new information and “tips” on how to keep our children safe “out there”!

The Safer Schools Together Parent Session was very informative and insightful. It highlights the realities of today’s digital world and offers ways for parents to protect and support their children. Every school community should arrange to have SST speak to their students and parents.

Safer Schools Together has always delivered high-quality, up-to-date, and relevant information about all things digital that hooks all participants right from the get-go! They recognize that Digital Citizenship Education is a community effort and that the impact is more powerful when students have multiple trusted adults they can discuss issues with, and when they’re hearing the same message reinforced both at home and in school. We are very impressed with both delivery and content and we look forward to having them back in the future.

I feel that all parents should be required to do one of these sessions before allowing their child to use social media. Thank you for helping us stay informed and invested in our children’s well-being, mental health and education.

This is an invaluable education session for parents and caregivers. It served as a reminder for some things I already had an awareness of but also opened my eyes to much more. I left the session feeling empowered. I highly recommend taking part in this!

A great informational presentation that should be made available to all parents annually. As platforms, trends & support info changes so should our awareness of the benefits and risks associated with social media & digital use.

The host did a great job explaining things thoroughly for people that may not have had any experience with apps/online tools. He didn’t come across as condescending and was upbeat and thorough. His communication was excellent!
