Speaker: Barbara Huth, from Common Sense Education, the education arm of Common Sense Media
Together we’ll address the biggest concerns parents have: managing screen time, getting a cell phone, cyberbullying, social media, and more. Backed by the latest research and full of practical tips, you'll have the tools you need to keep kids safe and help them take ownership of their digital lives. Join us to learn more about how kids and teens are using media and tech to create, consume, and communicate; how to guide your kids in making safe and respectful digital choices; and how to better understand, engage and communicate with your kids about their use of social media. Resources will be shared from Common Sense Media.
