The Northpoint PTO has invited Woodcrest families to attend a presentation by Alison Feigh on Monday April 6th at 6:30pm at Northpoint Elementary School. Please RSVP if you are able to attend!
Here is the information from Northpoint PTO:
Please join us for a presentation that you cannot afford to miss on how to keep our kids safe! As we become increasingly dependent on technology, we need proper tools that allow us to talk to our kids about internet safety without using fear. Alison Feigh will join the Northpoint PTO in April to lead a presentation entitled “Internet and Cell Phone Safety 101.” The goal of the presentation is “to EMPOWER” by giving us the right tools to talk to our kids without fear so that we leave “feeling smart, not scared.”
Alison is the Program Manager at the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center and was a former junior high classmate of Jacob Wetterling. She provides local and national training on child abduction and child abuse prevention. Alison’s “Internet and Cell Safety 101” presentation at Woodcrest last year was incredibly dynamic and insightful, so Northpoint PTO has invited her to speak on the topic again this year because there is no topic more important than the health and safety of our kids.
This presentation is designed for parents, caregivers, and teachers to help bridge the gap may adults feel when talking with kids about making safe choices with technology. Good communication is the key to safety at any age. This presentation goes beyond the sound bites and headline stories to provide accurate information on the problem and gives prevention steps to help prevent cyberbullying, sexting and online exploitation of youth. This is a great way to begin or to continue conversations with our kids about Internet and cell phone safety.
Please join the Northpoint PTO and Alison Feigh for “Internet and Cell Safety 101” on Monday, April 6, 2020 at 6:30 pm. Technology is amazing, but it also can be overwhelming and misused. As technology continues to gain influence and importance in our children’s lives, it is our responsibility to understand how to have open and honest communication with our kids about Internet and cell phone safety so that our kids stay safe and so that our kids know that they are not facing this challenge alone.
