This week on Where Parents Talk radio on 105.9 The Region, host Lianne Castelino speaks to Carol Todd, educator, internet safety advocate, founder of the Amanda Todd Legacy Society and mother about what parents and kids should know about the many faces of cyberabuse and sextortion.
“I think the overarching message is not to be afraid of the conversation, not to be afraid of learning more about the technology, digital world that our children are living in presently — because it’s 2023, because knowledge is power. And when you don’t know what’s going on, it’s hard to sit down with your child and have that conversation about online safety, or talking about sextortion or even literacy. And so it’s [about] gaining more knowledge. And it’s not just by going to one presentation or listening to one webinar. It’s listening to a variety of them. Because I promise you that every time you sit and listen to an expert or parent speak, you will pick up tidbits along the way.”
