The Virtual Parent Nights (60 minutes. School pays, parents enjoy):

This program is not complete unless parents are in on the message. We give tools to adults to help them converse with kids about social media. Rather than having parents come to the school, we will go to their home (online).

Here is what we cover during the Virtual Parent Night:

  • The alarming facts, stats and realities about growing up in the 21st century
  • The one thing people forget to teach kids about social media
  • How to help kids feel empowered and excited to be safe online
  • How to help kids build a positive online presence
  • The 6 conversations every parent must have with their kids about their life online
  • Refreshing your family outlook on social media

Here is how a Virtual Parent Night works:

  • You choose a date and time
  • We give you a unique registration link to email to your parents so they can sign up
  • Parents are automatically sent all the details so they can easily log onto the webinar
  • Parents log on, learn and interact with a LIVE Q&A
  • We send you a recorded version for distributing to the parents afterwards
