About the Event
Following many requests from parents after the hugely popular talk that we did for adults last November, we are pleased to present this event specially organised for Tweens and Teens!
Join American Association of Singapore and Singapore American School, with guest speakers from Homeland Security Investigations, on a Tween & Teen Talk about Social Media Use: How social media activity may impact the daily lives of teens today, in college and in their careers as well as the impact of sharing intimate images.
Did you know, for example, that your teen's social media footprint can actually keep them from getting into the college of their choice? And that not managing social media well can lead to severe depression? Let them learn what they can do to protect their emotional wellbeing and future.
Renée Green (Dean of Student Life, Singapore American School)
George Kwai (Regional Attaché, Homeland Security Investigations)
Melinda Murphy (General Manager, American Association of Singapore)
This session will lead with a presentation by Mr Kwai of the Department of Homeland Security Investigations, and will then be followed by a question and answer session between teens and our panelists. We encourage you to submit your questions to ensure that all of your questions are addressed. This also gives you an opportunity to ask your questions anonymously if you wish.
This session will cover some senstive issues such as posting nudity and suicide brought on by social media posts gone wrong. These topics will be presented being sensitive to a younger audience. Still, the information can be difficult. However, it's important for kids to understand how using social media improperly can truly destroy lives. Recommended for children ages 11-18. PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP CHILDREN YOUNGER THAN 11 YEARS OLD!
We will be having a Lucky Draw at the end of the session with some great prizes up for grabs to encourage tweens and teens to attend.
