International Activist Gabriella van Rij offers insight into how smartphones can be used to potentially harm others and technology is not to be blamed.
In Part II of a conversation with speaker, activist, and author Gabriella van Rij, she explores how kids, teens, and adults use smartphones to cyber-torment and the importance of properly monitoring and educating youth on smartphone use.
Gabriella van Rij is a widely acclaimed international activist and author, speaking across the U.S. to teens, kids, and parents (in English and Spanish) about building confidence, and shutting down bullies.
She has great insight into how the rise of social media activity is having a negative effect on kids and teens – and what parents should be doing. Plus, she can talk about bullying, how to recognize the signs and what to do (whether your child is the victim or the bully)!
