How to Help Parents Keep Adolescents Safe

Raising teens in a culture where social media is the primary source of communication can be overwhelming. Understanding the impact of social media on youth can help us be better prepared to protect them.  We will discuss the impact of sextortion on youth and help parents be aware of and recognize signs of grooming. Identify healthy boundaries and provide life resources to prepare a media safety plan.  We live in a world that has become sexually saturated. It is essential to empower adolescents with appropriate information to keep them safe and to inspire them to stand up, speak out, and be resilient.
