"Connected & Protected" Parent Workshop

Join us for a coffee and discussion as we join the 'Connected & Protected' webinar together. Technology can be useful and powerful. How do we better prepare young people for their experiences in the online world? This session will use current research to show the powerful interaction between insane technology and vulnerable, developing brains. Led by Chris McKenna, founder of Protect Young Eyes, we will discuss the challenges our kids are contending with in online spaces such as erosion of their attention spans, sense of identity, and resistance to sexual exploitation. Answering the question of how to better prepare our children with practical solutions so that you and your family might feel prepared, balanced, and protected online. Please let us know if you plan on joining us HERE.
