With more and more social interactions happening online, it can be tough for parents to help their kids navigate the potential pitfalls. That’s why Coquitlam RCMP is offering two seminars to help you get involved, be more digitally literate and keep your children safe.
Digital literacy can be intimidating. Many adults are less tech-savvy then their kids, says Constable Jason Davies, who will be presenting on behalf of the Coquitlam RCMP.
We’ll take you through the basics of cyberbullying, sexting and sharing of intimate images, child luring, and some of the apps that could make your kids more vulnerable. The goal here is to build up your comfort level and increase your family’s safety.
The seminars are open to the public and do not require registration:
- January 21, 2020, 7:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m.
- The McGee Room, Poirier Community Centre
- 630 Poirier Street, Coquitlam
- January 22, 2020, 7:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m.
- The Youth Lounge, Port Coquitlam Community Centre
- 2150 Wilson Avenue, Port Coquitlam
We’re leaving digital footprints everywhere we go, but that doesn’t have to be scary, says Constable Davies.
Once you’re a digitally-literate citizen, and you take an active role in your children and youth’s online activities, you’ll be much more prepared to navigate around any potential problems.
