Learn actionable strategies and takeaways to help your child navigate the digital world

ELK GROVE, CALIFORNIA January 15, 2019 – #ICANHELP is launching an online course, Navigating Parents through the Digital World, to accompany their in-person parent events. The goal of their online course is to target parents who are too busy to attend parent nights but still interested in learning the importance of digital safety.

The online course is a 35-minute training demonstrating the 8 Parent Guidelines and Questions You Can Ask About Social Media with the goal to inform and educate guardians on the different social media platforms out there, how to navigate sticky conversations with their children, and what to look out for in digital safety. Keeping children safe online is no longer optional, with a rapid rise of fictitious and abusive accounts, this course is aimed to empower parents to have the right steps and conversations to keep their children safe online.

“Social media can be scary, confusing and overwhelming to parents,” said co-founder Kim Karr, “but it doesn’t have to be.”  #ICANHELP has the goal to build a robust and high-quality online course for parents that they can interact with on their own time through any device such as learning at home, during their commute, or their free time. With this initiative, #ICANHELP is looking for donations to drive a professional program encompassing 12 2-minute bite-size videos for parents to consume on their own time.
