Cyberbullying & Internet Safety

As parents we want to ensure our children's safety in all that they do. In today's world our children have access to technology and with it comes great responsibility. Unfortunately, not all people on the other side of the screen are kind. Cyberbullying can take place in many different ways on the internet. Please use the tips and links below to learn more about how to keep your kids safe on the internet and to protect them from Cyberbullying.

Tips for your kids- 3 Things to Protect Yourself from Cyberbullying:

1. Make sure mom and dad know every time you are on-line

2. Only play games on line or chat with friends you and your parents know

3. Let your mom and dad know any time someone is mean, rude, or uses foul language with you on-line

Tip for Parents- How to keep your kids safe On-Line:

1. Keep computer in common area and make rule about your kids not going on-line without your permission
