Event description
PYE has discovered 5 traits that often determine digital success in many families. We call these 5 traits the Digital Trust Framework.

About this event

What is Digital Trust? Do you have it? What if we said it's the FOUNDATION for all digital safety instruction? We'll connect this idea to the things you care about - YouTube, Social Media, and Teen Mental Health. You’ll walk away with eyes wide open, note-taking guide filled, and steps that can be implemented when you get home.

**Prizes will be given away to all who register! (Virtual and in-person). 2 annual subscriptions to the PYE Protect App and helpful books for parents in the digital age.

There are 3 desired outcomes for those who attend:

  1. Participants will better understand risks in popular apps like TikTok, YouTube, YouTube Kids, Snapchat, Instagram, so that they can prepare their kids.
  2. Participants will better understand how to enable parental controls, if they exist on popular apps and internet-ready devices, so that harmful features can be monitored and mitigated.
  3. Participants will be better equipped to have the right conversations about digital topics with the young people they care for. Saying the right things to the right kids at the right time is the most powerful tool caring adults have to mitigate digital risk.

The combination of these three outcomes will give parents and caring adults confidence as they raise children, and greater empathy for the difficulties of growing up in the digital age.

Protect Young Eyes was founded by internet safety expert, Chris McKenna. Dad, runner, and lover of candy and spreadsheets. His Senate testimony helped spark deep changes to existing laws created decades ago that no longer adequately protect children from online harm. Prominently featured in the 2020 film Childhood 2.0, PYE is widely recognized as an authority on how average families can create safer digital spaces.
