January 18th at 6:30pm in the U-32 Auditorium Eric Thompson from Civil Schools will present, CivilSchools: Helping Your Teen Navigate the Digital World: Moving from Hurtful to Healthful
This presentation will address:
It doesn’t have to be this painful…
Rather than spending an evening discussing the dangers of social media, which are vast, we are going to equip you with the high leverage skills and interventions that are critical to your adolecscent's well being.
We have arrived in the digital world without a map or compass, thus putting many parents behind the eight ball. As with many of life’s challenges, they produce some of life’s greatest lessons.
With a good strategy, the digital world can be a perfect place for your child to develop self-regulation and self-awareness.
We will focus on the pro-social behaviors that will help your family not only successfully handle cyber-bullying, sexting, and other negative elements of the online world but how to design a plan that prepares them to thrive within it.
