I imagine I am not the only parent still trying to figure out what guidelines make sense in helping our family navigate life on snapchat and instagram? Our Connecting Youth program is sponsoring what promises to be a great informational evening with Eric Thompson April 11, 7 PM at CVU. I'm most excited about this part -
"We will focus on the pro-social behaviors that will help your family not only successfully handle cyber-bullying, sexting, and other negative elements of the online world - but how to design a plan that prepares them to thrive within it.
Hope to see many of you there!
Helping Your Teen Navigate the Digital World: Moving from Hurtful to Healthful
| CVU Auditorium
Does managing your teen’s relationship with technology cause friction in your home?
Are you concerned for your teen's safety online?
It doesn’t have to be painful…
Learn how to create safe digital boundaries and how to help your teen thrive in an online world.
Rather than spending an evening discussing the dangers of social media, which are vast, Eric Thompson, Co-Founder and Director of Leadership Development at Civil Schools is going to equip you with the high leverage skills and interventions that are critical to your adolescent’s wellbeing.
We have arrived in the digital world without a map or compass, thus putting many parents behind the eight ball. Many of life’s challenges produce life’s greatest lessons. With a good strategy, the digital world can be a perfect place for your child to develop self-regulation and self-awareness.
We will focus on the pro-social behaviors that will help your family not only successfully handle cyber-bullying, sexting, and other negative elements of the online world but how to design a plan that prepares them to thrive within it.
