  • Teens will, on their own, be bombarded with objectionable images and websites. It’s what we teach our teens to do when that happens that count. Do they know strategies for dealing with Internet dangers and how to be ethical users of the web?

  • A famous quote from Helen Keller said that "Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature.... Life is either a daring adventure or nothing" Helen Keller, The Open Door -1957 There is no safe, there is only AWARE. Aware of the pitfalls, the dangers, and what your child is doing online. The kids who are at most risk for getting in trouble online are already those who are “at risk” teens…but that’s not to say that we should not have an ongoing conversation about cyber ethics with our teens.

  • Have You Checked Your Child's Digital Footprint? ““ A digital footprint is the amount of content, whether it be words, photographs, audio, or video, that is traceable back to a given individual.” We have to encourage our kids to be aware of their own digital footprint. To be mindful of what they post and how they cultivate a good Internet profile so that when they apply to college, or a job, they know how they will be perceived by those people who will be digging for information ...and dig they will. Kids need to know that embarrassing or inappropriate pictures posted are there online and can be found forever. Again, Social networks are NOT inherently bad and they're not going away...it's more about using ethical & wise choices than being scared of the Bogey man out there - though they exist - it's more likely that teens will be harassed by other teens that they know than some stranger. Sad but true fact, teens who are at-risk in general will most likely be at-risk on the Internet. http://knowwheretheygo.org/DigitalFootprint/qa-have-you-checked-your-child-s-digital-footprint/
  • Social Networks and Facebook are not inherently evil, and they’re not likely go away. Though Friendster and Myspace is out…there always will be a place on the web for people to meet and connect. It’s up to us that kids are using these networks ethically and with caution. Because of the Federal law: COPPA or the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act …If your kid has a Facebook page and they are under the age of 13….it should be set to private. Frankly, I think all Facebook pages should be set to private. In addition, you should know your kids privacy settings and talk about sharing information with their friends, the world, and “friends of friends” Friends of friends are not their friend. In fact, most of the cyberbullying that goes on are through friends of friends.

  • It’s all our jobs to keep our kids safe. At home and at school but working together with them and having an open and ongoing dialog is the best thing we can do to ensure our kids "The most effective, reliable, Internet Safety Filter is an Involved, Informed, and Aware Parent and an Educated and Ethical Kid.” Thank you!
