Attention all parents

We want our school to be a safe place.

Because of the rapidly changing times, our tamariki are growing up in and the mounting challenges and harms they are facing online, we need to start talking about and tackling this as a community.

As such, we have organised Filmmaker, Author and Speaker Rob Cope, producer of the documentary "Our Kids Online" to come and give what promises to be a humorous and eye-opening evening talk to our parent community.

His talk will cover:
Cyberbullying - How bullies can reach our kids 24/7
Social media - How social media is affecting the mental health in 3 out of 5 children. FOMO, depression, anxiety
Gaming and the developing brain – An oversupply of dopamine leading to dopamine deficiency, synaptic pruning, and the underdevelopment of social skills and empathy
Naked Selfies - The pressure to send nudes from intermediate up through high school
Online predators - The methods they use, how to spot them
Online porn vs healthy sexuality - How consuming online pornography as a child or teen can create a sexual template where violence, aggression, and dominance are seen as normal and consent can become very blurry.
Solutions
Filters - Which filters are best and how to install them
Smartphones - How to lock down a smartphone to make it a safe phone
Boundaries - How to put good boundaries in place around device use
3 golden rules - The 3 golden rules that will keep your kids safe
Talking to your kids - How to have difficult conversations with your kids
Challenging our own phone and device usage - Reconnecting as a family.

Here is a promotional video for you to watch Our Kids Online Parent Evening.

The talk will be held in our school hall on Monday 1st July 7pm - 9pm
We would request that at least one adult from each family attend, this topic is too big for us not to pay attention.

As a bonus, Rob and the team from Our Kids Online are gifting every parent who attends this event a one-years complimentary subscription to "Parenting in a Tech World 101" - A cybersafety parenting course designed specifically for NZ families - This usually retails for $99 per family. So show up and get it for free! Course details here https://our-kids-online.teachable.com/p/the-big-reconnect-for-parents

"We need to tackle this as a community so that all of our kids are safe. When I protected my kids online, I also protected yours, so please, please protect your kids online so that you are also protecting mine" Rob Cope
