Their flyer for an upcoming talk on Cyberbullying.
As we all know cyberbullying is a very important and current topic of concern. This speaker, John Wills, has extensive knowledge of working and training in mental health, bullying and internet safety.
Don’t forget – you can take back control of access to the internet with our recommended simple to use app and router – So parents can have their internet and your children have what and when you decide !

Get your children back !


iKydz in association with the JPA Connect gives parents control of the internet in their homes. The Ikydz unit plugs directly into the router and parents then use the companion app to decide on WHEN their kids can use the internet and WHAT they can see.
