Your child’s phone has a deadly connection. Counterfeit pills laced with fentanyl are bought and sold on social media sites popular with teens. According to the latest research, more and more youth are getting drugs from social media apps, like Snapchat and Instagram. And the drugs are being delivered right to their front door.
Presenter and longtime law enforcement officer, Brandon Iurato, will discuss what parents and caregivers can do to help protect the children in their care.
• Learn what draws youth to these sites and how they communicate on them.
• Discover tips on how to spot the dangerous users on these apps and what the risks are for our youth.
• Hear ways to talk to the youth in your care about Internet safety and the dangers of substance use.
A question and answer period will follow the presentation.
