Teenagers and Cyber-bullying

One of the challenges for parents is knowing how to monitor and manage their teenager's use of electronic technology such as the Internet, gaming platforms, and smart devices. This is best done as a gradual process as the teenager grows from being a child into an adolescent. Every parent has to develop their own rules and set appropriate limits to encourage responsible, safe use of these ever-evolving opportunities. The formula for success includes encouraging teenagers to be respectful and considerate of other users, to recognise and manage risks, have a balanced lifestyle, and be informed and intelligent consumers. This seminar provides some ideas on how to help teenagers achieve these goals.

The seminar is to be presented by its developer, and the author of the evidence based Triple P Teen resources, Dr Alan Ralph, from the University of Queensland and Triple P International (Brisbane). This is an opportunity to hear directly from a world renowned researcher who collaborates with Professor Matt Sanders at the University of Queensland furthering the research and development of TEEN TRIPLE P (TRIPLE P for parents of teenagers).
