Let's keep children safe in the cyber age | BlueRidgeNow.com - 2 views

    I firmly believe as a child of a very "nosy" mother, that I is the parents duty to keep their children in check, but I do not agree with this! If you don't trust you child enough to NOT read their messages, then maybe they don't need one! All this does is give them doubts of your trust, they will feel as if you are invading their privacy, and will be deleting things constantly. Parents need to understand that trust works both ways.

    This conversation is going to be award and neither the parents nor the child wants to have it, but you need to. It's one way of protecting your child without destroying their trust and doubting yours!

    Quotes:
    "I routinely check the texts and photos on their cell phones," says Susan Kain."
    "let's all talk to our children about Internet safety, social networking sites and "sexting."

Parents vs Facebook - 1 views

  •  
    The controversial between Facebook crossing the line or being "ok"! A teenage girl goes on FB after coming home past her curfew and drunk. She get grounded for 5 weeks (no friends or parties)
    ! She goes and makes a petition on FB (1,000 likes to get her ungrounded") Some teenagers amaze me with how stupid they can be online! Don't ya think that the page would infuriate her parents more instead of arguing her "point"?! Teens like her are the reason good parents are so strict about the internet!
    Quote:
    "Facebook is not appropriate."
    opinions.... they go different ways... this is major conflict!

Talk to Kids To Keep Them Safe On The Internet (VIDEO) - 2 views

    Grimes, a internet awareness specialist, has a point! Many careless teens are going on sites such as Facebook and putting things up on the site they aren't going to be able to fix when they decide they regret in! These teens are making careless mistakes that could effect how their life turns out in the future! We need to be careful about what we put on the internet!

    Being your child's friend on Facebook allows you to view what you need to see without breaking trust with you children! Its a win for both!


    Quote:
    "The best thing we can do is teach our kids what the pitfalls are," he explained during his Internet Awareness presentation. "What your kid posts at 15, it is going be searchable when they are 25, 35. Our kids are making mistakes for the whole world to see."

    "Grimes advised parents to be their child's "friend" on Facebook(NOTview through their child's page, because that would show lack of trust in your children) and see what they are posting online =. Parents should look at their child's "friend" list and find out how many are actually known and not claiming to a friend of a friend. When children are young, they are told not to talk to strangers, however with social networking the warning does not always get followed. "
    "Cyber Bullying is not a technology problem, it often involves friends or former friends hurting one another. He described Cyber Bullying as a small version of what terrorists do - try to alter lifestyles - in these cases those of individuals or a small group."

    Tom Grimes told parents the Internet and social networking can be wonderful tools but they must be used wisely and their children probably do not understand how to do that and it can put them at risk. "The best thing we can do is teach our kids what the pitfalls are," he explained during his Internet Awareness presentation.

  • * Set privacy options.
  • * Explain to your children that they can't take back what they've written.
  • * Know who is looking at your profile
  • ...8 more annotations...
  • * Don't "friend" everyone
  • Don't let your child's profiles on social websites be available to everyone. Explain to your child why it's important to have the highest security and privacy settings. Parents should monitor their children's use of the computer while they're on the Internet.
  • Children and teens should think about who will be looking at their profile. Many people will be able to see their page, including parents, teachers, coaches, the police and the college or the job they might want to apply for in the next few years. They should post only the information they are comfortable with others seeing about them.
  • Merely deleting a post doesn't mean it's not still available for others to see in cyberspace. It is important for children and teens to know that once you press the "send" or "post" button, there is no going back. Think about keeping some control over the information you post. Consider restricting access to your page to a select group of people — for example, your friends or your family.
  • Unfortunately there are dangerous people who may be creeping
  • * Don't divulge too much information.
  • Now that school has started children and teens are spending more time online doing school work, research, and socializing. As soon as a child starts using the computer and Internet, it's time to talk with them about online behavior, safety and security. Parents need to know what to do to ensure their child is safe online, in texting, blogging, Facebook and visiting other Internet sites.

Internet Safety - 4 views

  • The Internet can be a wonderful resource for kids. They can use it to research school reports, communicate with teachers and other kids, and play interactive games. Kids who are old enough to punch in a few letters on the keyboard can literally access the world.

    But that access can also pose hazards. For example, an 8-year-old might do an online search for "Lego." But with just one missed keystroke, the word "Legs" is entered instead, and the child may be directed to a slew of websites with a focus on legs — some of which may contain pornographic material.

    That's why it's important to be aware of what your kids see and hear on the Internet, who they meet, and what they share about themselves online.

    Just like any safety issue, it's wise to talk with your kids about your concerns, take advantage of resources to protect them, and keep a close eye on their activities.

    Internet Safety Laws

    A federal law, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), was created to help protect kids online. It's designed to keep anyone from obtaining a child's personal information without a parent knowing about it and agreeing to it first.

    COPPA requires websites to explain their privacy policies on the site and get parental consent before collecting or using a child's personal information, such as a name, address, phone number, or Social Security number. The law also prohibits a site from requiring a child to provide more personal information than necessary to play a game or participate in a contest.

    But even with this law, your kids' best online protection is you. By talking to them about potential online dangers and monitoring their computer use, you'll help them surf the Internet safely.
