Social Media & Kids - Tools to Keep Them Safe and Keep You Informed
TikTok is a massively popular video app among teens and tweens. Users can upload and share 15 second videos of themselves dancing, lip syncing, or doing dangerous or provocative stunts. Parents should learn what TikTok is and then talk with their kids about properly using the app.
Who Are We?
The Enrichment Program is a free, personalized, solution-focused counselling program that supports youth and parents in building life skills and connections to the community. We also promote the development of strategies specific to individual needs.
We strive to create an environment where participants can experience successes, feel safe and respected, realize strengths, feel empowered, and feel connected. We can offer support for parenting skills, conflict resolution, anger management, home management/routines, self-esteem and self-confidence, friends/family/school concerns, etc.
What Do We Do?
We offer weekly, solution-focused individual counselling that focuses on your specific needs. For short-term assistance, we can offer conflict resolution or mediation between family members.
We offer a weekly, educational parenting group with a focus on positive parenting and relationship building, providing the opportunity to learn and share experiences in a supportive setting. Parents must complete an intake with the Program Director before attending.
We offer a weekly youth group with a focus on youth building skills in a fun, interactive, and supportive environment. Youth must complete an intake with the Program Director before attending.
