Parent Information Event – Issues Facing Children in Our Digital World

Dear Lord Nelson Families and Garibaldi Families,

Nelson PAC are strongly urging you to attend our upcoming Parent Information Event about issues facing our children in our digital world.

The presenter, Sam Jingfors, is a consultant who brings a background in criminology with a focus on cyberbullying, digital citizenship, and the privacy and security of children and youth online.  Sam currently works with Safer Schools Together as a presenter and consultant on the issue of digital safety.

In this presentation, Sam will outline how we, as parents, can make age-appropriate decisions to support our kids to understand the short and long term implications of the choices that they make in their social media and online participation.   PAC is also hosting Sam to work with all Lord Nelson Children in grades 1-7 on this topic; this presentation will also briefly update parents on what was shared with our children.

We encourage all parents and families in our community to attend and to be proactive in addressing this issue.  PAC hosted a similar presentation 3 years ago and those Lord Nelson parents who attended found it extremely relevant, informative and important.  Even parents of younger children who are not currently accessing social media will benefit from this presentation.

Please feel free to bring friends and neighbours and to invite others to come to this important talk with you.
