As a devoted and concerned parent I would recommend every school board and home & school association to offer this session to their staff and parents. It will be an investment you will be glad you made.

Jackie Thomas, Breakthrough Canada, Kitchener, Ontario

I simply cannot say enough great things about what I learned. For sure all the suggested changes will be done along with a more proactive approach from myself. Thank you.

My children are young but are on the computer and I want to start putting into place some “cyber smart” rules now so when they get older they realize just how important it is to be respectful, smart and protected offline as well as online! Thanks Melanie Rhora for helping with this!!

Leah Fletcher, parent, Kitchener, Ontario

Melanie is a great instructor. She is very patient and answers all questions in a manner that can be understood by non-technical users. Choosing Melanie Rhora to train our faculty and staff was the best decision we made!

Get Training to Keep Your Kids Safe Online

Most cyber-security seminars are focused in fear and scare adults into worrying about the effects of poor digital choices by our kids (cyberbullying, sextortion, pornography, and device addiction).  Our program is about empowering families to develop a complete digital understanding of safety practices to protect their most vulnerable members no matter what the issue is. 

Using our SMART method, parents and mentors will be able to guide children in creating a preventative thought system that will help them & their kids avoid almost any digital problem (both now & in the future).  So instead of reacting to a digital ailment (like sexting), we help families prevent the injury from happening.  Of course, we still talk about what to do as a parent or mentor if these issues arise, however when you begin an ongoing conversation with your youngsters (and the earlier we start these conversations the better), they will act responsibility to technology. (The same way we teach our children to respect heat when they are very young, and as they are older they just know not to touch a hot stove.)
