Cyberbullying – What Parents Should Know
JOIN US ONLINE FOR THIS LIVE EVENT Featuring Cyberbullying prevention expert, Julie Hertzog, from the nationally recognized Pacer Center.
With students receiving instruction online, they are on their computers for longer periods of time, and in a more private space. Students are more likely to send each other hurtful messages because of the low risk of being caught. Increased screen time leaves your student open to the impacts of cyberbullying without immediate, trained resources to help.
This 60-minute workshop will use real life scenarios to help you understand how you can help your children.
Topics covered include:
the dynamics of cyberbullying
ideas to talk with your children
ways to involve children in the response
how to work with the school
laws and policy
Led by expert Julie Hertzog, you will have opportunities to interact with her and ask questions.
REGISTER NOW! Only those who RSVP, will receive a link to access the event.
We thank you for being a part of this deeply important conversation.
