Many parents worry about what their children are doing online, yet very few know of the real dangers.
Developed in collaboration with West Midlands Police Crime Commission and Home Office PREVENT, this 90-minute live virtual session is hard hitting and will:
- raise your awareness to the good, the bad and the ugly of the Internet and what children are doing online.
- highlight the real dangers children are unknowingly at risk of when they’re using the Internet, social media, gaming and more.
- equip you with the confidence, knowledge and tools to engage children, and then their parents, in a concerted effort to encourage safe online practice in the home.
As part of the webinar, you will require to have in front of you a copy of our award-winning fun and colourful Safety Net parental engagement resource. The resource is vital to the training and an essential tool to enhance parent-carer engagement.
Resources will be sent out to you by post so it is important that you register straight away to ensure that you receive your resource prior to the session. Please see the short information video
By the end of this session, you will have gained an increased awareness of:
- the risks and issues associated with children and young people being online
