To be safe online, young people need strong social-emotional safety skills. Social-emotional development extends through the teen years, so, even teens with strong tech skills are safer with caring adults involved in their online lives. You’ll leave this program with more strategies to:
- Strengthen communication to keep conversations with your kids about their online lives open, respectful, and supportive
- Apply boundary setting principles to set clear rules about where, how, and when youth can use online tools
- Make a ‘Long-Term Shared Goal’ about your kids’ online lives that youall agree on – and can work toward as a team
- Build an age-appropriate understanding of issues including such as online privacy, cyberbullying, and digital citizenship
- Coach young people in making online adaptations for all of their in-person social-emotional safety skills
- Develop safety plans for trying new things online – and for getting help when things go wrong
This US$60 program includes one-on-one support by email with questions before and after the workshop as well as links to resources – including 30-day access to a video recording of another Parentpower program – to help you and your family apply, adapt, and practice the skills.
