FAB Present 'Keeping the Digital Generation Safe While Playing Online'

Wednesday, 13 December 2017

Friend’s at Blatch have invited Lorin LaFave to come in to Blatchington Mill’s Windmill Theatre and host an evening discussing young people’s relationship with online gaming and the social networks attached to them. The event will be held at 6:45pm on 17th January 2018.

Lorin’s presentation will cover:

  • Warning signs and behaviour to look out for.
  • How to approach to difficult conservations around digital
  • Where to find helpful resources
  • What to do if you are worried
  • How to report concerns
  • Where to find support

Lorin will highlight the importance of communication with our children about the dangers they face online everyday which ultimately increases the family’s well-being by opening up lines of communication. Especially for those who may not be tech savvy, we cannot watch our children every second of every day. Therefore, we need to ensure as they grow and become more independent that they are aware of the dangers online and are equipped with the skills themselves to protect their own self online.

Following Lorin’s talk there will be a Q&A session so parents can get expert advice and guidance.

There are limited tickets available for this event so please book early:

Friends at Blatch is the Blatchington Mill Schools Parent and Teacher Association (FAB). 

FAB’s aim is to provide educational events for parents, staff and pupils whilst raising funds for the school. 

In the last 12 months FAB has raised money for Duke of Edinburgh Award equipment and new school benches around the school. This coming year FAB is planning to support a number of school council projects, chosen by the students that will provide benefits for them and the wider school. Please look out for our updates and see how you can get involved.
