Through this fun and entertaining presentation parents will get the skills and confidence they need to be proactive in tackling text bullying, porn, sexting, online predators, gadget addiction and electronic gaming. Be aware of the scope and perils of this digital age, moving on past the negatives through to maximising the positives and putting safeguards in place.

Attitude manager, James Beck, joined Attitude in 2007 in Christchurch with over two years' experience working alongside young people. James' interest in and engagement with youth culture (he an active member of three bands) is key to his ability to relate to a young audience.

James' quirky sense of humour and passion for the messages conveyed commands the attention of his audience. He is strongly motivated to help youth realise their full potential, and sincerely inspires them to do so. James has delivered presentations to over 200,000 young people nationwide, helping them make better choices around drugs and alcohol, sex, depression, youth suicide, technology, social media and getting on with their family.

James' rural upbringing influenced his humour, and has given James a unique Kiwi presenting style that appeals to a wide spectrum of audiences. And when James isn't working, he is spending time with his wife Rebekah and their two daughters. Having a young family has added another dimension to James' presentations with the ever-changing role of being a dad shaping his experiences, and giving him a hands-on understanding of the amazing job of parenting.

Spaces limited, so please do book.

Doors open at the Performing Arts Centre at Heaton Normal Intermediate from 6:40pm, so arrive early to get your place.

Sponsored by The Parenting Place, Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board and The Archer Kingdom Ministry Fund.
