Family Education Program (F.E.P.)

(For parents of children below 9 years old)

The Internet has caused explosive changes to our social lives, our cultures and to our brains. While it has potential for good,  there is also much potential for causing harm, especially for our children who are growing up immersed in an on-line culture. 

 

What are the deleterious effects to be aware of? And how can we parent the new generation, so that our children become sensible adults of good character who are intelligent masters of this new technology? 

 

'Raising the Internet Generation' module will encourage and inspire us parents to realise that even in the challenging environment we live in, we can still be confident about raising smart, savvy and steadfast adults.
