Being a Cyber Savvy Kid

Teach children to be cyber savvy by explaining the following:
All media is permanent (photos, videos, messages, posts, etc.)!
All your online information is available to the public.
If you don’t want people to know something about your life then don’t do it online!
Even though you may feel invisible when online, everything you do is visible – it’s like living in a glass house.

*Talking with your parents is the key to online safety
Don’t hide your feelings about what happens online.
When you are confused, always ask questions!
Stay away from “adults only” areas of the Internet!
Tell your parents about anything that makes you feel uncomfortable!
Most harm that is done to children online can be prevented by talking to a trusted adult.
