Wellbeing in Tech: Parenting your children through their real and virtual worlds

In this it@cork Webinar, author of “The Parent” and founder of JumpStartYourConfidence, life and parenting coach Eileen Keane Haly will discuss the effect that the online digital and virtual world can have on children and young people’s mood, self-belief, happiness and overall wellbeing. She will outline how making a few small changes in their daily lives can have great impact. As our children spend more and more time online and in virtual engagements, we as parents need to help them understand and appreciate the need for balance, realism, perspective and moderation. Social Media often gets a bad rap, but the truth is it has many advantages and plays a significant role in the lives of our young people. Technology is an amazing enabler but unfortunately there are also pitfalls that can impact in a negative way in the real worlds.  Join us on July 1 to explore the online effect on mood, friendships, confidence, social interaction and happiness that impact so many young people today. This webinar is kindly sponsored by Dell Technologies.
