    How to Keep Our Kids Safe Online

    The internet is a wonderful thing. It has given everyone in the world instant access to an endless supply of knowledge and entertainment. But like most things in this world, it has a dark side. Over time, the internet has proven useful for education, businesses, and has helped everyone become more productive. If there’s anything we don’t know, we can easily find information about it using our favourite search engines. We can now instantly communicate with our loved ones, friends or even potential business partners and clients, regardless of the distance between us. Some countries have drastically reduced the usage of cash because of electronic or online banking.  We can even shop online from our own homes! The list of things you can do is just endless!     The freedom and power brought by the internet to everyone meant that it was only a matter of time until it was used inappropriately. It has given rise to countless dangers. Just recently, a twisted online game called The Momo Challenge started sweeping through the internet. Hackers are using a terrifying sculpture of a woman-bird hybrid in order to threaten and scare people into harming themselves. Want to do something to protect your loved ones? We’re here to help! They say that knowledge is power, so let’s start with that. If we know more about what we’re up against, then we’ll be better equipped to handle and prevent situations involving these dangers.

Malware There are numerous kinds of malware, but spyware is one of the most troublesome. It infiltrates your device and steals sensitive information, including your bank accounts and passwords.

Whenever your children download something, you should always check if they are doing so from a trusted source. Cyber bullying The regular type of bullying ends when a child leaves the school. Sometimes, teachers and parents can even intervene to put an end to certain bullying incidents. However, the same cannot be said when it comes to cyber bullying. Even when a child goes home, the bullying resumes as soon as they connect to the internet. Be sure to to take steps to find out what your children are being exposed to on social media websites and chat apps. Scams Communication became easy thanks to the internet.

    Sydney Speaking School – Learning by doing

    “The pen is mightier than the sword.” This metonymic adage implies that the written word can be powerful, but this doesn’t mean that words become less effective once spoken. Depending on how you speak, the impact of phrases and sentences can be a thousand times better than what it would be as a slogan on the wall. This highlights the importance of confidence and public speaking. With these skills, people will be able to better handle various situations and they’ll have the ability to accomplish almost anything they aim for in the future. In this regard, Sydney Speaking School aims to give YOUR CHILDREN a head start. Sydney Speaking School was founded in response to the lack of good quality education in public speaking and debating for school students on the North Shore of Sydney in 2014. It eventually gave birth to the organisation that we now know as Speaking Schools Australasia, which has numerous students across NSW, the ACT, and abroad.   The teachers and coaches of SSA understand how hard it can be to build the confidence to speak and they’re more than happy to go the extra mile in order to help your children get over their fears. The school’s student-centred teaching philosophy can be summarised using three words, Safe, Fun, and Educational.   Sydney Speaking School offers holiday workshops and term programs in both debating and public speaking for both primary and high school students. They offers courses which: are for everyone, regardless of background, skill or experience; are based on the philosophy of “learning by doing” to bring out the charismatic speaker within every student; and are taught in a welcoming atmosphere to a small class, by experienced coaches who are able to regularly give individualised feedback. What are you waiting for? Check out Sydney Speaking School! This is THE place to go in order to secure a better and happier future for your children.
