Event description
We can all agree that parenting can be very challenging, especially in this fast moving interconnected world!

About this Event

Having a conversation about internet and online safety with our children can be very difficult, especially when we don't know how to begin or what form it should take.

I have struggled in the past. Most of my conversations have been reactive, in response to the situation in hand. This can be frustrating at times because the conversation doesn’t always result to a positive outcome. This often led to frustration for the children as well because they don't know what is appropriate and not appropriate online activities.

Online Parenting Talk is an initiative to empower the parent to be more proactive and have continuous conversations with their children about online safety, to equip them in making informed choices online.

This talk is also in support of the Safer Internet Day 2019 which will be celebrated in February in UK.

Key Findings:

Do you know 53% of 3-4s are online in 2017 (up from 41% in 2016), as are 79% of 5-7s (up from 67%), and 94% of 8-11s (up from 90%). Nearly all 12-15s are online (99%), unchanged since 2016.

Do you know 91% of 12 -15 years say people are mean to each other on social media, and 10% say this happens all the time.

Do you know young people want support from the adults in their lives: Over three-quarters (77%) of children aged 8-17 years said that they wanted their parents and carers to be there for them if something worried them online.

Thoughts:

Are you worried or concerned about how the internet is shaping the lives of your children?

Do you know enough to keep your child safe online or are you leaving it for them to work it out themselves?

Is your child missing out on the benefits the internet provides?

"You Are Not Alone, come and join us at this free event as we explore these questions and many more…"
