Look Up: Teen Safety, Social Media & Parties

209 views

Published on

In response to the recent Rosedale Jam, which was promoted by an anonymous gossip site about Midtown teenagers, we were invited to present to an audience of parents and youth on social media and teen safety. We were thrilled to be among a crowd that was as passionate about social media and teen safety as we are.

Social media can be the least social part of our daily lives, so as parents, caregivers and community leaders, we have to teach our children to LOOK UP!

It was a privilege to join Toronto Police Service's Constable Alex Li and S/Sgt. James Hogan; Generator Project's Pete Bombaci; and MJL Consulting's Dr. Michael Leatch for last night's spirited discussion.

A special thanks to the Residents' Associations of North Rosedale, South Rosedale, Moore Park, Governor’s Bridge and Summerhill for inviting me to present and join in on this timely conversation. #lookup #internetsafety #socialmediasafety
