Hidden Dangers - Community Forum Event

Does your child know what to do when approached online by someone they don’t know?  Does your child know what to do when their friend has been coerced into doing something they don’t want to do? Do you know what to do?

The hidden dangers that our children face are very real and much closer than we think. Let’s help them navigate these challenges. Please join Susan Norris, from Rescuing Hope and Jeff Shaw, from Out of Darkness as they present to students and parents how to recognize the signs of Hidden Dangers.  Tuesday, January 15th, 6:30pm - 8:00pm at East Cobb Middle School, 825 Terrell Mill Road, Marietta.  Separate forum for parents/adults ~ Raffle prizes for attendees RSVP: http://evite.me/S7Ya19ng43  The event flier can be found here.

…don’t wait for it to be too late for your child.
