Parenting/caring in relation to the Internet can be very stressful for many reasons, one of them being that parents and carers are expected to guide their kids through the online world while they often feel they don’t have the appropriate skills and knowledge themselves.

This is highlighted more than ever in the current situation where many are working from home, sometimes home-schooling their kids, creating more stress and where online cyber attacks, scams and hoaxes are increasing dramatically.

The Parents Privacy Salon aims to provide training in basic Internet privacy/security concepts both related to parents/carers as well as their children. The workshops will enable parents & carers to understand and protect their own privacy, and consequently be better equipped to help their kids navigate the complex, exciting world of connected communications.

The Parents Privacy Salon training consists of two workshops giving practical advice and tips, showing participants some tools to use on computers, smart phones and tablets and how to install and use them.
