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?
