Parenting in the Digital Age

JewishCare’s Youth Services team held a seminar on Parenting in the Digital Age. It was a good opportunity for parents and carers to discuss keeping children safe online. It also presented information about the use of social media and there were discussions about gaming and safety issues.

The event which attracted 70 people included talks by Constable Yasmin London is the Youth Liaison Officer at Rose Bay Police. Yasmin works closely with local schools and community groups raising awareness about issues facing young people. Emil Hodzic is a registered psychologist and is the principal and founder of the Video Game Addiction Treatment Clinic and Garry Case is the Director of eLearning at Emanuel School and a strong supporter of educational programs around nettiquete and cybersafety.
