From Matt Richardson:
“Technology provides young people with new opportunities for learning and has limitless potential to have a positive impact on career prospects. It also presents a number of risks to their personal safety and emotional well-being, and can have negative impacts on their online image that can hinder their future goals. Parents will learn how to protect their children and instill healthy digital habits that will set them up for future success.”
