Did you know that 33% of local 2nd grade students have their own phones? The Blaine County School District presented informational meetings for parents on social media and internet safety for children on October 18 and 19, 2017. Thank you to the 110 parents who attended the meetings.
Victor Dominguez (pictured), Chairman of the Idaho Internet Crimes Against Children Coalition (IICACC) presented information on bullying and sexting, as well as child pornography and enticement by internet child predators. Parents learned how to protect their children by becoming familiar with the apps on their devices as well as software solutions which monitor their children’s activity. Dominguez said, “The first line of defense will always be informed and knowledgeable parents and guardians.”
