ACW Counselor's Corner by Darcie Rochester

HOT Topics in the Counseling World Nationwide:

This Thing We Call Technology!

We often have a love/hate relationship with technology. There are so many aspects of our daily lives that are made simpler by the advancements in technology, yet technology can also be harmful and hurtful if used inappropriately.

- Parental oversight is of the utmost importance in safeguarding our children who use technology. The need for parents to set clear, firm guidelines in their households about appropriate use of technology cannot go understated.

- Cyberbullying is just what it sounds like - bullying through Internet applications such as instant messaging, social networking sites, and cell phones. It can start easily—with a rumor or a forwarded message—and just as easily spiral out of control.

Learn the Basics of Internet Safety to Help Protect Your Child!

- Keep your computer in a high-traffic area of your home.

- Set limits for which online sites children may visit and for how long.

- Browse the Internet with your children so they can show you what they do online.

- Know who is connecting with your children online and set clear rules for instant messaging, social networking, online gaming, etc.

- Continually talk with your children about online safety.

- Remember!!! Internet technology can be mobile, so monitor cell phones, laptops, and other mobile devices as well.
