Year 7 and 8 Important Parent Night

Jordan Foster Parent Night – Thursday 7 March 6:00pm The world of games & technology is fast becoming the centre of our children’s universe. It can be a challenging task for parents to stay on top of the dangers of technology, while monitoring their child’s online behaviour and finding balance. We are offering a workshop for parents to learn more about managing children’s technology use, including information about current trends in popular games and gaming behaviours, recommendations regarding screen time and strategies for implementing healthy game limits.

We will also cover information on setting boundaries around technology, online behaviour management, and tools for managing technology both in and outside of the home.
This session will be facilitated by Jordan Foster. Jordan is a Clinical Psychologist and the founder of ySafe, a now nationally-adopted household name in the field of cyber safety. Travelling nationally, Jordan is formally recognised as one of Australia’s leading cyber safety experts, having provided online safety education to school communities throughout Australia. Jordan has extensive clinical experience working with children and adolescents with problematic and excessive gaming behaviours, has presented as a subject matter expert at several prestigious universities, and is a go-to media commentator in the field of cyber safety.
If you’ve ever struggled with getting your kids off their games and into bed, worried about the content of the games that they are playing or felt concerned that your child was spending too much time in the digital world, this workshop is for you!
