GPA Tackles Cyberbullying with Virtual Workshops

Jan. 21, 2022 – Keeping children safe online, whether it's from dangerous adults or hurtful bullies, is an ongoing fight for most parents. To help parents navigate online safety, Guilford Parent Academy (GPA) partners with Guilford County Schools’ Technology Services to offer cyberspace safety training for families.  

“The Digital World of Cyberbullying” is coming up at 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 25. Parents, caregivers and children are invited to join one of the virtual sessions to learn more about cyberbullying and digital harassment. The sessions will also cover the preventative measures GCS is taking and how parents can support those preventative measures at home. In the event a child experiences cyberbullying, parents will learn the proper steps to take.  

The sessions are part of GPA’s Engaging in Cyberspace series, which kicked off in November. To register for either session, visit https://bit.ly/3nLLQ7r. A link to join the virtual sessions will be sent via email after registration.
