School District No. 43 Safe Schools Task Force
An invitation to the School District Community
Parenting our Kids in the 21st Century
Presented by Kevin Cameron
Director: Canadian Center for Threat Assessment and Trauma Response
Tuesday Feb. 4th from 7-9 pm
Coquitlam Alliance Church, 2601 Spuraway Ave, Coquitlam, B.C.
The 2nd of a Three Series Event sponsored by The Ministry of Education, School District No. 43 and the community partner groups.
Peer dynamics, school dynamics, and broader social dynamics can have a tremendous influence on our children and youth and the greatest evolving force of all is the role of technology from texting, social networking (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat) and the Internet in its totality.
The factors that can negatively influence child and adolescent behaviours are far more prevalent now than when most parents were children themselves. The strategies to manage those risk factors have not necessarily changed; we just need to do more of it.
This presentation will look at some of the common and evolving problems faced by children, families and schools in this generation, and strategies used to deal with some of North America’s most complex cases from high profile suicides and violent incidents to the quiet personal tragedies known only by those who have endured them.
Please plan to attend at this event at the Coquitlam Alliance Church, 2601 Spuraway Ave, Coquitlam, B.C. Seating is limited to 700. Child minding will be provided across the street at Charles Best Seconday School.
