Internet Safety for Parents and Teens at Augsburg Library

Internet Safety for Parents and Teens Tuesday, March 19, 4 p.m. at the Augsburg Library in Richfield Join us and learn what you need to know about device safety, social networking, gaming, cyberbullying, and sexting in order to keep your family safe. Today’s youth are very technologically savvy.  Allowing them to spend large amounts of time online without any supervision or rules, however, is like allowing them to explore a major metropolitan city by themselves.

Do you want to set limits on your child’s media use but don’t know where to start? Then don't miss this information forum! Tues
