“Stella was brilliant. The parents were on the edge of their seats with a good blend of humour, healthy fear-mongering and practical tips for improving their household’s online safety. The presentation went into minute detail, taking the parents step by step through the process of safeguarding themselves and their children when using social media. Stella also delivered a powerful overarching message; that we must teach our children to behave online in the same way that we expect them to behave in the real world. This is a timeless message for a generation of parents who will always fail to keep pace with their children’s technology. If only one parent took something away from the presentation then it was an hour well spent, but I dare say it was a fair few more than that!” Andrew Webster Deputy Headmaster Daneshill School.
Gooseberry Planet is a company which works closely with schools to educate students, teachers and parents on how to stay safe-online. It was set up by Stella James, CEO:
Being a Mum I am challenged daily with my children being online, my own lack of education has put my own children at risk, which is one of the motivation´s for me to start Gooseberry Planet. We need to embrace being online, but most importantly we have to take responsibility for our Children´s actions, usage and create boundaries. During the workshop I will show you how to do this and also make YouTube, Google, Facebook, and gaming safe for your children to use. We only have to look at the news daily and there is another child being groomed via music.ly, live.ly, Roblox or Minecraft, let’s make sure this isn’t your child being targeted by paedophiles.
