Internet Safety

July 12, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

The internet is a powerful tool that provides an easy, convenient way to access a wealth of information. It also provides opportunities to engage and catch up with friends using social media. Although it is fun and engaging, it can be dangerous for adults and youth alike. Online activity places us at risk for identity theft and other cybercrimes. Join us on Tuesday, July 12 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST as we discuss Internet Safety.

During this session, caregivers will:

  • Learn strategies to protect their identity and other personal information while online.
  • Learn to recognize potentially unsafe, dangerous, or risky online situations and behaviors.
  • Learn how to talk to youth about internet safety.
  • Learn best practices for keeping youth safe while online.
  • Identify strategies to use when encountering potentially unsafe, dangerous, or risky online situations and behaviors.
  • Participants will also learn how to activate parental controls on popular devices like the Xbox, PlayStation iPad, and Android Tablets.
  • Learn to model appropriate online behavior.
