Internet safety for young people is the topic


The Martha’s Vineyard Youth Task Force will sponsor a free presentation for parents by Internet safety expert Kaitlyn LeClerc Greer at 7 pm, Wednesday at the YMCA.

Ms. Greer will speak on topics that include: Is Facebook safe? Is my child being cyberbullied? What’s texting? Sexting? What’s next?

“It’s overwhelming being a parent today in our technology-driven society. Keeping up with the latest trends and dangers seems like an impossible task,” Theresa Manning, task force director, said. “Katie will walk you through this, and let you know what’s new, what’s now, and what’s next when it comes to your children and technology.”

Ms. Greer will also spend the day in the Martha’s Vineyard schools giving a presentation geared to students.
