How Are Leonie’s Talks Different From Other Cyber Safety Talks?
There’s no point in holding a Cyber Safety talk every year if parents don’t go home and make changes to keep their family safe online. The more knowledgeable your parent body is about technology the safer your students are.
Parents leave Leonie’s talks, understanding which apps are safer for children to use, they don’t just get the scary stories. Schools where Leonie has spoken, report that parents who attend Leonie’s talks actually go home and set up all their family online accounts, modems and computers with privacy and safety settings, so that their families are safer online. They also start to have conversations with their children and other parents about the online world!
Leonie’s Cyber Safety Manual “Keeping Kids Safe Online” with step by step instructions for safety & privacy settings, underpins the information that parents receive at her presentations. Most parents take the manual home and then they have a practical guide to help them prevent problems BEFORE they happen!
Parents learn about:
- Safe and unsafe apps.
- How to set up adult content filters.
- Age limits on social media and messaging apps – safer options.
- Online game safety.
- Sexting – Online grooming
- How to reduce the potential for cyber bullying.
- Safe sharing – dangers of oversharing.
- Tips to encourage their children to open up about their online world.
- Supervising rather than spying on your child’s online world.
- BYOD Responsibilities for parents.
- Where to go for help with cyber bullying or online scams.

Sample Of Slides For Talk:
“Leonie gave an engaging talk that really informed parents of the dangers of the cyber world for young people, without condemning technology itself. Parents were challenged to think about their role in taking charge of technology in the home. She recognised that parents often feel powerless in the face of ever changing possibilities on the internet. Parents made comments to me that their eyes had been opened, and they felt well equipped to talk to their children. Leonie’s publication reinforces her message.” Chris O’Sullivan Deputy Principal Covenant Christian School
As a parent…
I recently attended your Cyber Safety seminar at Manly Village Public School. I just wanted to write to you to say thank you. I found the evening incredibly informative, practical and so valuable in terms of safeguarding and educating my children about staying safe in this fast moving and ever changing cyber world. Karen Wooldridge Parent
As a principal….
‘Since the first Parent Education Session presented by Leonie in 2013, we have noticed that the school is dealing with less incidents of inappropriate behaviour relating to social networking…Leonie’s resources are often referred on to parents to support them in informing themselves of what their child may be exposed to.’ Josie Vescio Principal St Rose Catholic School
