Parent Perspectives

Parent Perspectives is our comprehensive series of parent programs that enriches our partnership with parents while strengthening the sense of community that is a hallmark of BGA.

Whether through guest speakers or the expertise of our faculty, our programs are designed to educate, inspire and support parents as they navigate the transitions and celebrations of their child’s development. Through these expanded opportunities for engagement and learning, we aim to empower parents with information they can use to confidently guide their children through each stage of their schooling journey.

Tuesday, January 30, 8:30 a.m.
Sondra Morris and Robert N. Moore, Jr., ‘52 Center for Arts and Entrepreneurship 

The Counseling Department is proud to collaborate with BGA parent and FBI Special Agent Brent Hervey and Benjamin Miller, Special Agent from Homeland Security Investigations, to offer this important, informative program to our parents. They will be speaking about the risks students face in the online environment. The presentation will discuss personal information being shared without realizing it, location settings, social media friends lists and privacy settings, tactics used by predators to target kids online, as well as resources for youth if they encounter issues while gaming, chatting, or interacting online. Example scenarios based on Franklin-area investigations will be used to help parents better understand how children can be victimized online. This informational session is for parents only.
