Cyber Safe & Bully Proofing for Teens

Two hot topics with parents, this workshop is designed to increase safety awareness when children are using the internet, as well as to explore the idea of bullying; what it is and how to prevent it.    “It is estimated that 2 out of 3 households in Canada have a computer and access to cyberspace, and 26% of kids ages 9 to 15 went to meet a friend that they met online without permission of their parents” (source: www.kidproofsafety.com)
