About this Webinar
Who is the course for?
This course is for parents or carers of children or young people who want to learn more about the world of social media and the internet and allow them to support their children and manage any risks around this. This will focus predominantly on the social media sites that are popular with young people and help you to understand what they are for and how they are used.
It will also look at how to talk to your child about their internet use, put screen time restrictions in place and also look at the issues of parental controls on devices and software.
To use the eventbrite system you need to book and pay online, you can do this from a computer, a smartphone or a tablet.
If you would prefer to do this with help from a member of our staff, or if you would like to make a 'paper form' booking please contact your local LLE office.
