The internet, smartphones, and social media present a variety of new risks for children and teens, along with new challenges for parents.

Nationally renowned cybersafety expert Frederick Lane, the author of "Cybertraps for the Young," visited Grayson County Schools in November to share insights and tips with parents. We are pleased to be able to share that presentation.
