OLD PROVERB: It takes a village to raise a child.
NEW PROVERB: It takes a digital parenting community to raise a digital citizen.
The Digital Parenting Community is a private Facebook group that is designed to be YOUR place to share, support and cheer each other as you parent in the digital age.
The community is lead by lawyer, mom and eSafety expert, Elizabeth Milovidov, and the community members are parents and caregivers just like you: parents who may not have all the answers, but who understand that awareness is the key. The more we are aware of issues in the digital age, the earlier we can react, protect our children and benefit from the fabulous technology that is out there.

"I was very inspired and empowered by Elizabeth's presentation 'Parenting in the Digital Age.' She is very eloquent and articulate, and her message really hit home! I really appreciate the fact that took the time to write up and provide handouts. I put the info next to my bed and read a bit each night and discussed it with my husband who was unable to come to the talk. Elizabeth's part of the presentation was a bit short due to the host's time restrictions, so I have decided to hire Elizabeth for 10 of my friends to do another workshop in my home (this time it will be 2 hours chock-full of info)!"
"I am so grateful you spoke at our school last week! I feel so empowered to be a part of this journey, along with my four kids. Thank you for dedicating your life to protecting ours! "
"Thank you so much for yet another amazingly informative session sharing your knowledge and expertise with us! What comes across is your genuine passion for your field and your sincere desire to raise awareness and educate the community. It is certainly reassuring to know that you are there for us to reach out to for clarifying our doubts and queries. It can get a bit of a challenge sometimes to stay updated and on top of things, especially with children of varying ages. Thankfully, they are mature and reliable. Plus they keep an eye on each other's activities and that comes in handy as an automatic checks and controls app! Even so, it is vital for families to stay aware of current and potential pitfalls as well as ways to prevent or tackle them."
"Merci pour vos interventions et pour l'animation de cette rencontre. Ce format est à retenir. Nous avons apprécié votre introduction, votre écoute, votre positionnement en léger retrait qui a laissé place à des échanges fructueux. Les parents sont tous partis avec le sourire, et ont insisté et nous disant que ce fut un échange très fructueux, qui leur permettait de remplacer leurs inquiétudes ou dépassement dans un contexte plus global etc. Excellents retours ! Je dirais même que ce fut la meilleure réunion de ce type du point de vue de l'ambiance! "
