Internet Safety Tips for Parents

On November 7, 2016 the Aurora Schools Foundation sponsored a special event about how to keep children safe in an always connected digital society. Jesse Weinberger, internet safety speaker, spoke to parents at the Aurora High School about internet safety. She spoke to kids in grades 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 on Wednesday (11/2) and Thursday (11/3). The November 7th presentation to parents was frank, colorful and a surprising summary of what she learned about our kids and their internet habits.

Listen to this video and you will be blown away by her candor and knowledge of what kids are up to today and what to watch out for. Jesse Weinberger, talks about Digital Parenting, and Internet Safety Tips for Parents, and how to keep children safe online.
