We are excited to share the attached invitation to our upcoming Social Media Awareness and Parenting the Digital World event being held on Wednesday, September 26th at Campus Regina Public, starting at 7:00 p.m. Regina Public Schools is proud to sponsor this event which is being presented by Safer Schools Together.
The parent presentation will focus on all things digital. Your child has now entered into their digital media lives, where cell phone ownership doubles, video game use explodes and they dive into the world of social media and hypertexting. Your child is rapidly developing their personal identity with cell phone in hand and you need to be prepared. Family rules, parental controls and developing a family tech plan will be outlined as well as recommendations for monitoring your teen’s digital life. As a parent, you must lead the charge as a digital role model and help your child develop a strong digital citizenship foundation while reminding them that their digital footprint is a reflection of their real and online selves. At this age, they will encounter situations that will challenge their independence, including cyberbullying (and more commonly – cyberexclusion), the dangers of anonymity, privacy, sharing intimate images, and inappropriate websites, and you need to be there to provide support and guidance during this critical period. Finally, to better equip you for your digital parenting strategy, a snapshot of the current trends and concerning apps will be provided.
To RSVP your attendance for this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, September 21, 2018. Limited seating is available.
Please feel free to share this invitation with your committee members and parents. Everyone is welcome!
