PCO Presents: Cyber Safety & Youth Technology Trends

Please join us for Cyber Safety & Youth Technology Trends: Creating Responsible Kids on Smartphones through Adult Awareness and Behaviors on Wednesday, May 23rd from 6:00 to 8:30 in the Upper School Cafe.

Ryan Klingensmith, as the founder of Shape the Sky, has brought together a network of concerned parents, educators, clinicians and media for a common cause: to enrich the online experience for our children through better education and more effective communication.

There will be limited space so reservations are encouraged. Please reserve your spot now. This is an adult only event. Pizza and childcare will be provided for school-aged children of ECS families. For more information, please contact Jill at events@ecspco.org.

Children are born into an online world where they often believe they’re all on their own. They don’t think parents have the understanding to help. Or worse, that parents may overreact to requests for guidance. So kids don’t ask, parents don’t get involved—and the conversation never starts.

The truth is, children have the knowledge to navigate the Web, but lack the wisdom of an adult’s experience to do so safely.

At Shape the Sky, bring knowledge and wisdom together. Get an inside view of the online world our children live in. So you’ll know how to “talk the talk.”

Then, we’ll help you start the conversation with your children. So you can connect, share and learn together. We want to help you create responsible kids on smartphones effective communication.
