There are a whole range of dangers lurking on the internet that parents want to protect their children and young people from. Erotic and pornographic content in particular can cause anxiety and disturbance. But These omnipresent topics are a major challenge for educational professionals, parents and teachers. 

The fact is that the digital world is exciting and diverse. Online media are an essential part of the lives of young people and children. They are the opportunity to communicate, try things out and learn. However, social networks, online games, apps and chats also harbor numerous risks. 

In this online event , the taboo topics sexuality and pornography on the internet are discussed - informatively and with specific recommendations for safety and prevention. 

The event aims to teach parents both technical and informal principles and to point out the difference between pornography and sexuality.

How can protection from problematic content be guaranteed?
How can prevent children from being put in danger by strangers?
Where can be contacted in an emergency?
How can you behave in the event of incidents in a school and private context?

This event is being held in cooperation with the regional elan steering group Gießen-Vogelsberg.
