Modern parents find themselves in a double position. On the one hand, almost everyone can provide their children with access to modern technologies and educational programs, be aware of where their child is and what he is doing (every teenager now has a phone), but at the same time, this ubiquitous digitalization has led to a sharp the growth of all kinds of threats - primarily informational.
And it's not even so much about the danger of disclosing personal data or bullying on the network, which is also common - it is about the fact that children from a young age find themselves immersed in a virtual environment and spend a huge amount of time in front of screens: communicating on social networks, watching films, TV series, clips, listening to YouTube bloggers and so on.
And everyone understands that this factor leaves a huge imprint on the child's psyche, but few are aware of the parameters of this influence, the internal features of the process and its specific consequences. Few people are able to communicate with a child on topics related to popular movie characters, media characters or music performers. Communicate not just in a “chat” format, but in such a way that reasonably and convincingly convey the understanding that some things from the virtual environment are harmful, and they should be avoided, and some can be used for the benefit of oneself and others.
Adults often think that their children are already better at handling phones, computers, Wi-Fi and more. But in reality, children only quickly master the gadgets themselves, but they do not have the skills to use them useful and, in general, to distinguish between constructive and harmful information, and this is precisely where they really need help from outside. In turn, parents, not having a holistic picture of modern mass culture and the virtual environment, and because of this, not being able to communicate with a child from the level of an experienced adult on these topics, most often simply withdraw themselves. Many impose severe restrictive measures at best. But bans can only be useful up to a certain age. In adolescents, unsubstantiated restrictions no longer cause anything but irritation (as a result - a deterioration in relations with parents and a leveling of the policy of prohibitions).
The truth is that protecting children from the spectrum of the main information threats in the modern world requires extensive knowledge in this area on the part of the parents themselves. In order, on the one hand, to smoothly teach your child to constructively interact with the same Internet, and on the other, to always be able to react meaningfully to any destructive information that, in one way or another, almost everyone encounters.
Within the framework of the Teach Good project, a huge educational information base has already been formed, gradual familiarization with which will allow parents to fully understand the essence of the problem and master the necessary methodology for working with information. The main materials are presented in the form of articles and videos on the site. There is also an opportunity to take an online training marathon "Conscious Perception of Information", during which in 2 months not only master the basic theory, but also consolidate it in practice in collective activities with other participants.

There is a tragedy in Kerch. On October 17, an eighteen-year-old boy Vladislav Roslyakov, a 4th year student at the Polytechnic College, killed 20 people, wounded more than 40, and shot himself. Crazy loner! - the host of the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company "60 Minutes" is obstinately hammering - a plastic doll, which, in a metallic gnashing voice, voices what the authorities order. For this she and her partner are paid a lot of money. The event in Kerch is quenched in a lie

In spring, beautiful and aromatic vegetables, fruits and berries literally haunt a potential buyer. They are sold on every corner, store shelves are bent from an excess of goods, and market sellers are actively beckoning customers to try the "very juicy peach." But do not forget that "beautiful" does not mean useful
Analyzing the causes of negative social phenomena in Russian society and ways to overcome them, it is extremely important to take into account the historically formed cultural code of the Russian person. By nature, a Russian person is a kind person, acutely and sensitively perceiving evil, negative manifestations and challenges, primarily on an intuitive level. An automatically natural reaction for us is an attempt to distance ourselves, to distance ourselves from such a phenomenon and its source
