The Studio to host “Beat The CyberBully” seminar
It is up to us as parents to learn the language our children are speaking to be able to support them more confidently and effectively in the fast changing online world.

As the mother of a 4 year old who is fast becoming more adept on an ipad than I am, I felt very passionately about inviting Barry Cummings from Beat the CyberBully to come and talk to us parents and help create awareness around this subject.
Our children are way ahead of us when it comes to technology and we as parents have a responsibility to be as well informed about the online world as we possibly can to keep our children safe.
Barry is a sought after speaker and regularly lectures at schools around Dubai to help educate parents and teachers on the fast growing online world and how to promote more positive use amongst children.
Parents in the Middle East and globally are struggling to keep up with the rapid pace of technology and constantly emerging social networking platforms. Online and mobile misuse is a growing concern that we as parents can’t afford to ignore and that can have a profound effect on our children.
Barry and the team at Beat the CyberBully, led by youth speaker Wayne Denner can help bridge the digital divide and teach us how to support our children’s online use in a positive way.
We would love for you to come to The Studio for a coffee and join me and many other parents keen to be better equipped for our children’s online future.
Barry will be with us on the morning of Wednesday October 14th 9am-10am here at The Studio.
This event is complimentary in support of creating awareness for parents in our community. Places are limited so please sign up early to avoid disappointment.
