Every parent needs to know this stuff...thank you so much for helping us to understand what it's like now for our children.
Absolutely amazing parent/carer event, making such a huge difference, I'm a mum that has grown up around tech and it still shocked me!
I found the event so interesting and a big eye opener. I have learnt to be more aware now of online apps and games, especially now when looking after my Grandson. Thank you all for making more aware.
The two John's are amazing speakers and their information invaluable. My husband is going to attend next year. We need to gain as much knowledge as possible to protect our children and not say we didnt know this was happening!
Thank you the two Johns
We have had them visit school for parents children and staff twice and their input both as a teacher and a mum have been invaluable. They tell you it how it is and inform you how to best go about ensuring safety for children and teens online without the condescending, judgemental and unrealistic expectations of non engagement with the online world being peddled by some (including so called safeguarding experts). By keeping it real and posting regular updates they have helped me ensure that all of the children in my care are able to have open honest conversations about how to make things safe online and what to avoid if that safety can’t be guaranteed (roblox and tic tok for example). They empower parents to engage with their children on a level they can respond to both when they’re watching and when they’re not. Thanks guys you’ve made all the difference.
Thank you both for a very well presented and informative presentation at Loyola Prep last night. It has given me much food for thought and also encourages me as a parent to approach things differently and to move away from that "cliff edge". Keep up this great work.
Thank you to the 2 Johns. A challenging but very helpful presentation to the parents. I was pretty naive before. Lessons learnt. Particularly good were the suggestions for how to safely lead your children well in internet safety in a step by step manner.
Just wanted to say a big thank you to you both. Some of the key points I’ve learned tonight will help shape my children’s development and wellbeing. Every parent needs to watch them. Thanks again
Many thanks to the 2 Johns
for allowing us to observe their presentation tonight. A very engaging and informative session. If you get the chance to see The Two Johns -100% recommend to any parent worried about online safety for their children.
I wanted to write to say a big thank you for the day you did at Little Hadham Primary School. The feedback we got back from parents and children was overwhelmingly positive! You have such a good way with the children and I feel that they will be far better prepared going forward for this intervention!
Thank you and hopefully meet you again in coming years!
Thank you for an amazing talk at the school tonight. I have no idea about a lot of the apps and games. But feel confident to navigate these with my daughters as they grow up and keep the communication flowing. You are changing futures with the work you do.
I wanted to say how much I appreciated the talk from the two Johns on Monday evening. I attended largely because of my lack of understanding around Fortnite and knowing how best to guide Alex. In fact I realised we are doing quite well with that! However I knew absolutely nothing about the apps that were discussed and was stunned to find out later that both Alex and Holly are very familiar with all of them.
It was great that the children had their own talks during the day too. The whole experience prompted a really constructive family discussion and enabled us to set more educated and less random boundaries.
I attended the talk at Brightside last night and wanted to thank you. Your delivery and how you got your message across was excellent, you were engaging, and informative, you really connected with us and the kids earlier that day. The content of your sessions has truly shocked me. In my naivety, I had no idea. You have made me question our approach to tech which has been very much to keep it limited, out of reach. We don’t game and spend very little time online as a family. But I can see I am not teaching my kids how to be safe with this approach. We will now consider a ‘letting out the rope’ approach. I don’t know how you keep sane and positive dealing with this subject throughout your career and it must at times be unimaginably soul destroying. But thank you for doing so, for helping open my eyes and for making a massive contribution to keeping our kids safe.
I've seen John present this several times and I'm amazed how fast things change. You need to see this every six months to stand a chance of keeping up. The facts, stats, anecdotes, quotes, videos and walk-throughs are expertly presented. The things you thought you knew are probably 100% polar opposite to reality. Be prepared for a difficult listen backed by hard evidence - usually from 1,000s of kids from local schools during the previous week! If you don't think it applies to you or you think you already have this kind of thing covered - think again and book up for their next session.
The two John's came to the school I work in today and I can't thank them enough for the knowledge they've installed into the children and the staff. I thought I was pretty clued up with internet safety but I was actually so very naive. I am shocked by what I learnt today but with great advice and information, I'm now tooled to address the issues I previously didn't even realise existed. I can't recommend these guys enough! Thank you..
Fantastic workshop, with a huge impact. Finally some "real" and relevant information, that will help us keep our children that little bit safer when playing certain games and using certain apps. It is shocking to learn about the actual danger out there - forget 'stranger danger'! Very impressed with parenting tips, which made me think twice about how to approach online safety, to ensure our children will actually tell us when things are 'not right'. Thank you!!!!
I considered my self pretty knowledgeable on internet safety but the two John's opened my eyes to a whole different world. Not only did they bring me up to date with how my children are at risk, but gave fantastic advice on communicating with our children to keep them safe online. Prior to the session I was really sceptical but I highly recommend anyone with children attend a session.
Had E Safety training with one of the Johns today as part of the onward training I have for my profession. I cant say enough about how informative the training was and how helpful. My eyes were really opened to the dangers which are not at all apparent on a lot of the Apps and games our children play. We were also advised on the way to handle situations such as grooming and how technology is now a very important factor in our childrens lives. As a parent wanting to keep your child safe your immediate reaction may be to deny them access to the internet or live gaming. We were told how this only makes matters worse and how to deal with these situations in a constructive manner. I thoroughly recommend this course.
These guys came into our school and totally opened my eyes to a world I thought I was fully in touch with...how wrong I was. I’ve emailed them with separate questions about apps my son has wanted and they’ve always given a full and thorough guide and explanation of how to let him play in a completely safe way. Happy parent knowing he is safe; happy son as he is allowed to play the latest games.
