Would you hand your kid a chainsaw without giving them safety instructions and supervision? Then why are we giving them media and technology without properly preparing them? This may be an extreme comparison, but a relevant one.


Two weeks ago, the PTO's Social/Emotional Wellness Committee hosted guest speaker Alison Feigh from the Zero Abuse Project. With real life experience and examples, Alison lead a discussion with parents on the concerns of kids having free reign with technology and social media. But this wasn't only a fear driven discussion. Parents were given practical tools to discuss safety with their kids.


What if... Tell me more... Who is in your safety net?


Parents left with plenty of resources and tools to guide their kids though the tricky and ever-changing technology landscape. We really enjoyed hosting Alison and the Zero Abuse Project and can't wait to have her back again! Please see the links below for several resources that were provided during our discussion as well as the SLP School District's site with iPad resources.
