This event has been postponed.
If you are the parent of a tween or teen, you have undoubtedly heard of Fortnite. But have you heard of Apex Legends?
Fortnite has been the rage for the past two years and many tweens and teens have enjoyed the game (perhaps a bit too much). Apex Legends launched in February of this year and has already surpassed Fornite in users – over 25 million in just a few days.
What do parents need to know in order to understand and manage the Fortnite and eventual Apex Legends, phenomena? During this presentation, eSafety and Digital Parenting consultant, Elizabeth Milovidov, will explain the game basics – from the dances, to lawsuits about the dances, to hackers and Fortnite cheat videos, to predators and inappropriate language and more. She will address the positives (teamwork, strategy) and pitfalls (in-app purchases, grooming) of online gaming and offer insight into why our kids love these games so much. The presentation will be followed by an interactive discussion on screen balance and setting limits where parents can support each other to find ideas that work.
