FREE Classes: “Keeping up with Generation Z: Social Media Safety”
Kaplan University, Ben Buenzow State Farm Agency, and Blue Frog Marketing Group are hosting two informational sessions designed to equip parents and Generation Z kids with the tools to understand and monitor the sometimes misunderstood world of social media. Allowing your tween and teens to use social media isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, in many ways it can be incredibly helpful to your child’s growth by teaching them independence, problem solving, and computer skills. However, every parent and child should know about the very real safety concerns exist on the internet today. These classes are free and open to the public.
