What does your social media page say about you? Watch this video with your kids and find out if they have any of these on their page:
 
  • Embarrassing pictures
  • Personal information
  • Inappropriate videos
  • Threats
  • Complaints about teachers
 
Talk to your kids about who might see these posts on their page, how it could hurt others, and how it could affect their future. Once something is posted to the internet it is almost impossible to completely delete it. Decisions your kids make today could play a role in their future!

Cyber Safety Series


 
 
We are teaming with NetSmartz.org to bring attention to cyber safety that will include topics on basic internet safety, cyberbullying, online gaming, cell phone safety, social networking, and more. This will be geared towards parents and their children to help spark conversations on how to be safe while online.

Children use a variety of online services, and each of these services can have different safety concerns. However, there are some basic tips which you can employ no matter how your children use the Internet. 

*Keep the computer in a high-traffic area of your home.

*Establish limits for which online sites children may visit and for how long.

*Remember that Internet technology can be mobile, so make sure to monitor cell phones, gaming devices, and laptops.

*Surf the Internet with your children and let them show you what they like to do online.

*Know who is connecting with your children online and set rules for social networking, instant messaging, e-mailing, online gaming, and using webcams.

*Continually dialogue with your children about online safety.
