What Will I Learn?

You will get the same techniques Josh Ochs presents to 30,000+ students and parents each year all across the country.

The Smart Social Summit isn’t filled with a bunch of safety tips you’ve heard before. It’s not your average “how to keep kids safe online” advice. This online Summit is for parents and educators who want to limit screen time at home without conflict, monitor their students online without being intrusive, and protect their family online with the resources they already have.

I’m not a technical person, is this suitable for me?

Yes. This conference is for beginners and tech-savvy parents alike. The only prerequisite for the summit is a willingness to take action and set aside the time! You do NOT need to have any additional monitoring apps or tools. We will show you how to keep your family safe online with the tools you already have. Bring an open mind and learn how Josh’s tips will help you in the long run.

My child doesn’t have a phone or any social media. Is this summit for me?

Yes - we will teach you how to help your student develop a healthy relationship with screen time (before they get a phone/social media) and prepare for a positive digital footprint in their future. These presentations are perfect for parents of middle school and high school students.

My child never makes any mistakes on social media. Is this summit for me?

Yes - we will teach you how to build upon your child’s positive digital footprint so they can stand out from the competition when applying to their dream college or job. This presentation is helpful for any parent of students ages 8-18 years old.

I’m not sure what apps my children use - is that okay?

You will be given the tools and framework to figure out which networks they’re on, how to monitor their activity, and how to start a dialog that will get them communicating.
