What's on for Parents

The Getaway Cafe is an opportunity for adults to enjoy awesome coffee, fresh tasty delights and a guest speaker.

Guest speakers James and Simone Boswell will explore the topic “Cyberparenting: Raising Your Kids in an Online World”. Our children’s lives are immersed in technology; their music, social schedule, schoolwork, games and daily interaction rely on it. Not so long ago, we as parents/caregivers could limit our kids’ exposure to the internet, guiding them through the information they found and protecting them from predators, bullying and port. But the goalposts have moved: devices are portable and access is possible 24/7.

James and Simone update parents and caregivers on what they need to know about technology and how it impacts families. But more importantly, they discuss timeless parenting principles that help mums, dads and grandparents teach their kids how to live out their faith online and stand firm when the physical and digital worlds collide.
