Social media & the internet.
Social media and the internet is extremely popular among young people and will likely be part of their daily life. Young people will adapt quickly to new technology and use it to communicate, socialise and create. Most teenagers have access to the internet using a smartphone or tablet, and use a wide range of social networking sites as a vital part of their relationships with others.
It’s important as parents we know the cyber world our young people are immersed in, so we can protect and support our young people.
There are many benefits to social media and the internet, but as with any technology there can be issues that could affect your teen, such as, cyberbullying, online grooming, inappropriate content, online pornography, and perhaps their own online reputation and self image.
On Friday 17th Nov 2017, 7.30-9pm, SJB Youth Ministry is hosting a PARENTS WORKSHOP (grandparents, youth workers, teachers, anyone who has regular contact with young people, are welcome) where there will be the opportunity to hear more and discuss these very issues. We warmly invite you to join us. We don’t have all the answers but let’s look at what we do know, what we can do and where we can go for help.
Our workshop is running the same time as SJB youth club, so you can leave your young person (anyone in school years 7-11) at youth club and come and join our workshop. We will entertain your young person for you.
