Social Media Talk

Cashel Community School Parents Association would like to invite parents/guardians to attend a talk

“Social Media: Challenges for Parents”

Dr. Maureen Griffin B.A., M.A. Ph.D Foresensic Psychologist


Date: Monday 24th September,

Venue: CCS GP Area

Time: 7pm


The presentation will provide an overview of what is currently popular among Irish students, what the potential dangers are and offer practical advice on how to protect children when they are online or using their mobile devices.

Issues such as social networking sites (e.g. Instagram); social messaging/chatting apps (e.g. snapchat); video-streaming sites (e.g. YouTube); mobile device safety; screen time; grooming; sexting and cyber-bullying will be addressed.

The parent talk is not about blocking content online; it is more about teaching children how to be responsible when online, by making parents aware of the dangers and highlighting some practical tips.
The talk lasts for a little over 1 hour in length with time afterwards for questions and answers.
