Digital Citizenship

The Internet puts a world of information at your children’s fingertips and lets them stay in touch with friends 24/7 by sharing pictures, texting or even talking on the phone. Whether they’re trying to create a movement with a viral video, have a friend who is a victim of cyberbullying or just want to know how to better protect your privacy on social media, as a caregiver you can make sure they’re getting the most out of the Internet while staying safe!

But like many other social situations, some kids bully other kids online. Here are some tools to help you identify cyberbullying and prevent it as well as have important conversations with children and students about their online behavior.

With your guidance, kids can create a positive online image that can help enhance their reputation and could even impress colleges or future employers. Get more tips on preventing oversharing below.
