Cyber safety: Gaming, social media and sexual content

Join leading expert Dr Joanne Orlando in this session for parents

Produced by the City of Sydney

For parents with kids using the internet, social media and video games – sexual and violent content is a source of constant concern.

Join this session with leading expert, Dr Joanne Orlando, to help you better understand children’s technology use. You’ll hear stories and research identifying where risks and safety issues lie, and why they’re there. Learn some strategies, and get balanced information to empower you to make the right choices.

Explore the effect of social media on young people’s privacy, health, well-being, relationships and reputations. Find out what aspects of social media, gaming, and sexual and violent content can be unsafe and harmful.

Apply your understanding of when, where and how children see violent and sexual content and develop ways to guide them. You’ll also learn how to recognise and manage problematic gaming habits.

This 1-hour session includes time for questions and access to new resources developed by Dr Joanne Orlando.
