Internet Safety For FamiliesResources from the Live Session on March 12th
Cyberbullying, Trolling, Online Predators, The Dangers of Social Media, an Lack of Privacy are concerns for kids of all ages.
The internet age has brought around a completely new model of human interaction and with that, new worries and threats. As parents, we all need to be vigilant to both support our children’s use of connected technology while understanding how to mitigate the risks of having a presence online. In this session, we explained how children interact on the most recent social media platforms (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Musical.ly, AskFM, etc.) and how to advise them on what to do and what not to do online. We shared key tips on how to talk to your child about internet safety, a code of conduct for interacting online and how to maintain privacy while still being part of the internet revolution.
