Our Kids Online Seminar Follow Up

On Wednesday evening, 23rd June at the Performing Arts Centre, Zareen and Rob Cope presented some challenging truths about the online world to which our tamariki are exposed. They have carried out extensive research and their findings informed us of the online benefits and extensive dangers of the internet. 

  • Free access to the internet via smartphones and tablets, along with gaming devices such as Playstation, or even Smart TVs, use apps that have the potential for traumatic exposure to cyber-bullying, pornography and online predators. 

Adults have not been raised with the level of online access that our children’s generation have. 

Social media connects us to strangers in ways we have never had to consider before. Adults model the internet and social media use. If we don’t know the answer, we Google it. So curious kids are doing exactly that too and finding some horrific things at the same time.

Zareen and Rob have provided a thorough list of points from their seminar. (See the PDF attached)
