Update: regarding events

We’ve been following government guidelines closely on larger gatherings and assessing the wisdom and practicalities of running our events. In light of this, we’ve decided to change the locations – to your homes! Here’s how it will work …

Those who have booked will receive a YouTube link from us on the day of the event, where you’ll be able to watch, in full, as we stream at 8 pm. We believe this will be a unique experience and we hope you can join us online.

Left To Their Own Devices? – Confident Parenting in a World of Screens is for parents, carers or anyone who is passionate about helping children navigate the digital world confidently. Katharine and Sim will enable you to power up your parenting for the online generation.

Much of modern society is dominated by the digital world, and our children are growing up with countless online possibilities at their fingertips. It’s an exciting world for them to explore, but there are potential dangers. As parents and carers, it’s natural to want to protect our children from any pitfalls.

So what strategies can we adopt to ensure our children gain the benefits of being online, whilst developing a responsible relationship with technology?
