Have you ever been concerned about the amount of time your child spends playing video games?

The online world offers both opportunities and risks to young people. So what are the parenting strategies that simultaneously optimise the online opportunities for young people while minimising online risks?

The talk is being hosted by UP @ Hobsons Bay Youth Services on Level 1 of the Newport Community Hub.

 

You can expect to learn more about:

- Parenting strategies to balance screen time in the family home.

- When to seek professional help

- Violence and other inappropriate content
