“Who rules the household?” We laugh about this lighthearted joke, but it can stop being funny when our children approach the ‘tween stage’. It’s at this point that many parents find themselves often wondering why their kids are behaving in certain ways. This informative presentation by Mrs. Charise Casiano, MS, will focus on parenting styles and what it means to hold our families accountable. She will explore how to implement positive and constructive boundaries and consequences with our children, tweens, and adolescents.

We want to give our children “everything,” but at what cost?

The cyber safety seminar for parents, Parenting in the Digital World, is a 90-minute, engaging and eye-opening presentation about what is really going on in our children’s digital world. In this “new normal” where children are learning online from home, they are exposed more than ever to online predators and the damaging effects of screen time. This seminar will show you the current games, and apps teens are using today. Secondly, cyberbullying and other online threats are defined with current trends and real-world examples investigated in schools. Lastly, participants will be given tools and an action plan that they can immediately begin using to help keep their children safe online.
