Internet Safety: Unintended Exposure, Legal Consequences and Protective Measures, April 30

Internet Safety: Unintended Exposure, Legal Consequences and Protective Measures
April 30, 2018, 7-8:30 pm
WMS Auditorium

Discussion with Jason Verhoosky (Wayland Youth & Family Services), Detective Castagno and Officer Bowles (Wayland Police) and Julie Suratt (Wayland parent of three and journalist)

All Parents are Welcome! Please, No Students.

Last year, the WMS PTO screened Screenagers, which raised the question of the impact of digital use on our kids. This year, we switch gears to understanding how we can create a safe environment and experience, and the importance of communication and setting boundaries. The Internet’s ease of access can cause unintended exposure to age-inappropriate material that can have far-reaching negative implications.

Additionally, the Police Department will share potential legal consequences that all parents should understand, as well as the rise of and dangers of sexting. Finally, Julie Suratt is well versed in these topics through her research for her article, “The Birds and the Bees … and Porn,” which will appear in the May issue of Boston magazine.
