As we all know, technology changes all the time, and kids are constantly finding the newest websites, apps and gadgets. It’s up to the parents to teach them the basic rules of Internet safety so they can use all of these responsibly. Online access for kids comes with risks, such as inappropriate content, cyberbullying and online predators.
On Friday, December 7, 2018 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., I will be holding a one-hour seminar titled, Kids, Cell Phones and the Internet: A Tangled Web. This seminar is for parents to understand the importance of online safety for children and teens. The seminar will be held at DeKalb County Public Library – Dunwoody Branch located at 5339 Chamblee Dunwoody Rd, Dunwoody, GA 30338.
This event is free but space is limited and registration is required. You can register online at: https://events.dekalblibrary.org/event/1310329.
A former FBI agent will also be discussing child identification kits where parents can take and retain fingerprints and a DNA sample of their child. He will also be discussing the FBI Child ID App.
Please share this event with the residents in your communities.
Hope to see you there!
Officer Anwar Sillah
