Parent Academy

Most parents and instructors know about the power of digital, but few have solutions for the challenges children are facing, including harassment, bullying, sexting, access to inappropriate content, substance use, identity theft and predators. If not caught, these behaviors can lead to human trafficking and domestic violence. DFI offers in-person classes to help guide parents on making decisions and finding the answers they are looking for.
