  • 11. Bad things can happen
    1/31/2011
    65% of children reported a negative experience online.
    Continuous change requires continuous dialogue.
    If you sense changes in a child’s behavior, investigate early.
    Children tend to feel it’s their fault – help them see it is not.
    Encourage them to seek help when they need it.
