The Children’s Network of San Bernardino hosted its 37th Annual Children’s Network Conference at the Double Tree Hotel Event Center in Ontario. The sold-out conference had a record number of more than 400 guests and 25 exhibitors such as First 5, IEHP, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Inland Empire in attendance. The conference featured educational training and workshops on fentanyl, suicide prevention and topics for professionals who serve children and their families.

The Children’s Network’s new Network Officer Kristin Hinds was introduced at the conference and shared her thoughts about the impact the conference has on children and families in San Bernardino County.

“I want to express my gratitude to the Children’s Network for organizing such a wonderful event,” said Hinds. “Being a part of it was truly an honor, and I am looking forward to the positive outcomes that will result from all the learning and new connections that happened and materialized at the event.”

This year’s keynote speaker, Clark Morrow, a retired law enforcement official with 25 years of experience in school safety, youth issues and public speaking shared his knowledge and insight into the current trends in social media and their impact on today’s youth.

“If anything happens to a young person of any significance to them, any importance to them, their first instinct is to post it to their friends and followers, not necessarily to talk to another human being; posting, not talking, is a child’s first instinct now,” said Morrow.
