Thank you to everyone who came to our first ever Town Hall on Social Media Parenting. It was a big success, and accomplished what we set out to do: get the conversation going. We plan to hold these types of events twice a year – once in the fall and once in the spring. Be on the lookout for our next Town Hall date. In the meantime, here are some resources we pulled from our education partners on social media and parenting. We will be adding to this list as more are published.

Role Modeling Good Digital Citizenship Habits
Our children emulate the ways in which we engage with technology. It’s not too late to model positive behavior.
