Event description
Gain knowledge and confidence to help support your child(ren) in their online lives.

About this Event

The key focus of this workshop will be to generate conversation about how to support young people: having open conversations, getting involved in their online lives, role modelling and parental controls.

In this one day workshop we will look at the social media context, personal views, different approaches, levels of knowledge and confidence. We will consider approaches to managing contact including unmediated contact, and consider attitudes to openness on contact, drawing on research around the pros and cons.

We will look at the latest technology trends and key statistics about how young people are using technology. We will identify the different apps young people use, as well as key influences online. Looking at specific apps we will cover what they are, how they work, and specific risks and certain settings parents can use to help keep children safe.

We hope to have time to discuss specific concerns for adoptive parents such as: young people bringing password protected devices from home; young people being contacted by birth family on social media; birth family sharing information inappropriately online; managing online footprint.

The aim of the day is for participants to gain knowledge and confidence to discuss social media with their child(ren), with information to take away including useful websites and helplines.

If you are an adoptive parent who adopted through or is resident in Glasgow, please contact us to see if you are eligible for a free ticket scotland@adoptionuk.org.uk
