About
Join START for a global screening of this eye-opening documentary produced by parents Rob Cope and Zareen Sheikh-Cope, whose blended family includes four children aged nine to fifteen. While navigating the pros and cons of handheld devices in the current digital climate, they decided to start making documentaries and providing resources after discovering what children are accessing--particularly in regard to exposure to online pornography, predators and the effects on children's emotional and physical well-being. The film includes practical ideas to help parents keep children safer online. Rob, Zareen, the START team, and other global experts will be available throughout the film to chat with participants. Designed for adults only; while not visually graphic, descriptions and stories are likely to shock or disturb younger viewers.

The first hour will provide a comprehensive and compelling overview of the context faced by our youth and the final 30 minutes will provide practical steps you can take to help them stay safe online.
