On Wednesday 13th February, we held the 3rd Parent Cafe of the school year. Many parents showed up and listened to a lecture about internet safety for teenagers from a parental perspective. This is a subject which is new to many of us and only now are we starting to really understand the negative effects that social media and the usage of the internet may have on our future generations. While the internet can have many positive effects on the way teenagers lead their lives, the risks of misusing this valuable tool can pose serious risks and it's important that they recognize these risks.
As promised, our Student Care Manager shared the presentation so that each parent can go through it again, watch the included videos, and have a discussion with their children at home. They need to know the effects that social media and the internet can have on them.
