Just in time for summer vacation, this course will help parents keep their kids safe and secure online.  We know that kids will be spending a lot of time on their computers and phones over summer break, so we will  teach parents how to monitor their usage, use online protection sites, and also stress the importance of passwords. We will also cover aspects on how to talk to youth about online safety when emailing / chatting with strangers and the precautions and safety measures to follow to stay protected.
