For Mental Health Connection’s (MHC’s) Recognize & Rise initiative, together, with our coalition of members, have organized a series of webinars to help us learn and rise together. On 1/26/21, as part of our Learn a Latte Parenting Series, we hosted a free webinar, alongside the Arlington Police Department and Alliance For Children, as they guided us through ways to safeguard our children from internet crimes.
This webinar focused on:
- Current trends related to internet crimes against children and how to facilitate conversation with kids and teens about the internet.
- Safety and security issues that children and teens face, such as: inappropriate content, online privacy, sexting, online solicitation, and cyberbullying.
- Tips for caregivers on how to protect our children online, no matter how they acces the internet.
