As part of National Internet Safety Month, upcoming program focuses on upside/downside of social media for small children, teens and their families.
June is National Internet Safety Month. In recognition, Social Media Breakfast Syracuse, the McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center and F.A.C.E.S. of Nottingham are presenting the program “A Parent’s Guide to Social Media Safety” on Tuesday, June 27, from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at Nottingham High School, 3100 E. Genesee St., Syracuse.
For students and their parents, social media can be beneficial in so many ways: helping young people develop self-expression, networking skills, technical expertise and an appreciation of different perspectives. Likewise, without proper oversight and guidance, it has a downside: fostering mood disorders, emotional detachment, social media addiction and oversharing, as well as prompting potentially dangerous issues with cyberbullying and stalking.
What can parents do to help today’s cybergeneration enjoy the benefits and avert the perils of online engagement? This is the focus of a panel discussion led by Onondaga County Senior Assistant District Attorney and Special Victims Bureau Chief Jeremy Cali with participants:
- Chris Brown, superintendent of the West Genesee School District
- Tracy Daige, high school counselor for the Syracuse City School District
- Maureen Foran-Mocete, outreach and education program coordinator for the McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center
The event is free and open to all. R.S.V.P.s are appreciated (to smbsyracuse53.splashthat.com).
Breakfast is provided, courtesy of Café Kubal, Cathy’s Cookie Kitchen and Original Grain.
