Free Webinar: Parents' Guide to Social Media

Many parents often feel overwhelmed as they try to navigate social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat and more. In this training, we'll review where kids are spending most of their social media time (spoiler: it's not Facebook.) We will share with parents how they can stay informed and involved with their kids in healthy ways. We'll outline methods of helping your children make smart decisions and remain safe online. Finally, we will take a closer look at cyberbullying and interactivity.

Training Objectives: 
  • Be introduced to the world of social media, exploring where children are spending most of their time online. 
  • Learn healthy ways for parents to stay informed and involved. 
  • Explore methods of helping children make smart decisions to remain safe.

Jamie Golden joined the team at CAS in November 2006. She currently serves as the agency Director of Marketing. A degree from Emory University in 1998 gave her something invaluable: an introduction to the Internet and electronic mail. She graduated and took her Napster account and worked for the Department of Human Resources recruiting foster and adoptive families. In 2000, she dug into LiveJournal and a start-up nonprofit, The Storehouse, where she planned events and ministered to students. In 2004, MySpace and serving as a student minister at Westwood Baptist were dominating Jamie's time. Jamie now splits her social media affection among many: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, and her blog, Jamie's Rabbits. She also has a real life too. She promises.
