The summertime offers more free time and our kids are going to want to do things online more than ever. So what are some guidelines that we can set and how do we keep them safe. This article that just came out covers this material very well. It is at the Common Sense Media website.
As for Balanced Life Skills we will be covering age appropriate reminders for students on internet safety in our Focus on Friendship summer workshops for kids. In this part of the workshop we will be talking to each group about defining the term cyber-bullying, and helping them to see healthy ways to use the computer and safety rules for them to be aware are necessary. Each age group will be treated appropriately.
