Parents often say, “My kids know about more about the Internet than I do.” That should never be the case, and that’s why SSF will offer the Train the Trainer Program. It has become an essential part of parenting to watch over Internet activity and the use of other technologies. The parent is in a constant struggle to stay one step ahead of their child.
During ‘Train the Trainer Programs’ We will discuss how to effectively supervise your children while permitting appropriate levels of freedom. Parents will learn about monitoring programs they can purchase and SSF will even provide free and discounted Internet security software. This program will be useful for community leaders, teachers, pastors and youth workers as well as parents.
Kids look to their parents, teachers and community leaders to help guide them. SSF strives to help in keeping children safe by providing assistance to those that guide children.
Call us today to see how we can bring a ‘Train the Trainer Program to your school, church, community center.
FACT: The average teenager is online an average of 5.5 hours per day!
According to the FBI, there is a “100 percent chance” that children will encounter a sexual predator in one of the 40,000-plus chat rooms that criminals enter to find victims. Through these chat rooms, or even direct contact through social networking websites, what appears to be casual conversation is actually a manipulation by the predator to acquire personal information about his prey. Three-fourths of children and teens say they have shared personal information about themselves and their families to complete strangers in chat rooms. Predators have a methodical, well-thought-out process of luring children into their traps.
Elementary Program (Ages 5-7)
One in three children in America’s elementary schools use the Internet, according to the U.S. Department of Education. These developing minds are unprepared for the manipulation of predators. That is why SSF will teach children using coloring books, games and online cartoons to teach them about how to safely use the Internet.
Tween Program (Ages 8-12)
At this age, children are feeling more independent and are eager to explore. They begin using social networking websites like Facebook, YouTube and other services. It is nearly impossible to prevent exposure to graphic images and videos and opportunities to communicate with strangers. The Department of Justice says that at least 15% of tweens will use the Internet to talk to someone they do not know. This program will educate children about the dangers posed by illegally downloading files, sharing information over the Internet, the damage caused by cyber-bullying and what consequences they face if they engage in it.
