Digital Citizenship Week
• Monitor your child's online activities, and don't stop monitoring just because they are getting older.
• Understand the terms of service for social media websites. The minimum age for Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. is 13 years old. That means no student at Lakeview should really have their own account on any of these (or other) services.
• Balance screen time with other activities. Students who spend too much time just playing video or online games think about playing video games even when they're not playing video games. It sounds strange to say that, but think about it this way: A person who loves to play basketball thinks about basketball, even when she's not playing basketball. A person who loves to play the drums thinks about playing drums, even when he's not playing drums. It's natural. But as parents and educators, we want to develop students who are "hands on" and "minds on" a variety of experiences, and that means creating digital citizens who know how to keep a balance of activities in life.
