Learn about child safety issues through our online programs created for children and their caregivers.
Sharenting Course: A primer for parents sharing data concerning children on social media.
Sharenting is the overuse of social media by parents to share content based on their children, such as baby pictures or details of their children's activities. While the term overuse might seem subjective, its impact on the digital footprints of children is alarming. Studies estimate that by 2030 nearly two-thirds of identity-fraud cases affecting today's children will have resulted from sharenting.
This course therefore aims to :
- sensitise parents on sharenting practices.
- to reflect on the digital footprints being created for children.
- enable parents to avoid the pitfalls of sharenting.
Cyberbullying: Introductory course to address internet safety for children.
Age group- 8-11 years
Cyberbullying is when a person is harassed, humiliated, embarrassed, threatened, or tormented through the use of digital technology such as: computers, cell phones, tablets, or laptops.
Children who are victims to cyberbullying often fail to understand they are being bullied. In comparison to bullying, cyberbullying can more traumatic as it can use multiple channels and you need not be dealing with a familiar person. Clubbed with this, is also the fact that anything posted on the internet leaves a digital footprint that is hard to erase. Cyberbullying also can lead to serious social and emotional issues in children.
This course aims to address this issue through orienting children to various definitions, case studies, exercises and activities that will enable and empower children to take the right course of action in the face of any cyberbullying scenario.
