Internet safety tools for a new generation!
Knollwood Community Church is teaming up with Enough Is Enough® (EIE) to bring internet safety to families of Burke and the surrounding communities. Knollwood cares about your family!
The Internet Safety 101® seminar was created by EIE, in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Justice. It is a widely-renowned resource and teaching series that paints a comprehensive picture of the dangers children can encounter online. Through the Internet Safety 101® program, EIE strives to educate and empower parents, educators and other caring adults with the information they need to effectively protect children from internet dangers. Check out their trailer at http://internetsafety101.org.
Parents remain the 'first line of defense' in protecting their children against Internet safety dangers. However, oftentimes parents, educators and other caring adults are ill-equipped, uninformed and often overwhelmed when it comes to internet safety issues, and they need credible outside help.
That’s why we at Knollwood want to help you stay on top of what is going on with your children and the internet. Below is an example of the information that will be shared via DVD at the seminar:
WHO Should Attend?
