Hey! You! On the Internet!

A little note in my inbox about the GEA’s Internet Safety Workshop tonight:

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We would like to provide a clarification with respect to the upcoming safety workshop (see below). The session is intended for “parents only”. The Outreach coordinator who will be presenting that night believes the information is not appropriate for all children and discussions by parents might be hindered by the presence of children.

Thanks for your understanding and we hope to see you there.

STUDENT SAFETY WORKSHOP

presented in cooperation with

GRAFTON HIGH SCHOOL AND GRAFTON MIDDLE SCHOOL

Tuesday, May 26, 2009, 6:30pm

Is it just me or is bringing children to a workshop about the evils of the Internet/bullying and how to protect them kind of counterproductive?
