Highlighting conversations we have with educators, students and parents about online safety and privacy

Join us for a discussion on the impact of technology on our mental well-being and the crucial role of educators, and parents.

We can’t leave parents and guardians fending for themselves. It’s challenging to keep up with technology, social media, and their effect on our children’s learning outcomes, mental health, and safety.

Let’s face this together as a community!

Join us for another informative Courageous Conversation about navigating online safety such as cyberbullying, dangerous trends, sexting, and privacy.

We will address:
Solutions and additional support for parents and educators
How new AI is affecting learning and family dynamics.
How to use technology responsibly and safely to preserve
meaningful connections in person and online.
Strategies and approaches to tackling dangerous social
media challenges (i.e., the choking challenge, the Benadryl

Our discussion aims to acknowledge both the risks and opportunities associated with technology in our classrooms and daily lives. Let’s work together to ensure a safer use of technology and protect our families.

We encourage you to submit questions in the RSVP and share this invite with others who could benefit or find inspiration. We look forward to seeing you!

Maurine Molak
Founder @David's Legacy
Maurine Molak, along with her husband Matt and their two oldest sons Cliff and Chris, founded David’s Legacy Foundation after experiencing the tragedy that no family should ever have to experience. In January of 2016, their 16-year-old son, and brother, David, died by suicide after experiencing months of relentless cyberbullying.  After David’s death, Maurine and her family, made it their mission to prevent this from happening to another family by working with Texas legislators in 2017 to pass “David’s Law” which provides public schools, parents, and law enforcement the necessary tools to address cyberbullying. In subsequent sessions they continued their advocacy to strengthen “David’s Law” with increased suicide prevention, digital citizenship, additional reporting requirements and the mandated provision for campus-led anti- bullying and school climate committees.
