An internet safety specialist from the Illinois Attorney General’s Office will teach parents how to protect their kids online in a free talk next week.
Sarah Migas, who is also a social worker, is scheduled to speak at Dr. Bessie Rhodes Magnet School, 3701 W. Davis St., in Skokie from 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15. Called “Parent’s Guide to Being Cybersafe,” the talk is free and open to the public.
Migas will talk to parents about how to determine the appropriate age to introduce certain media, how to set boundaries on what information is private and how to model healthy behavior with technological devices—as when dining or driving.
She will also talk about how parents can teach their kids to be responsible online and be aware of how their words and actions can be hurtful or even harmful to others.
