Are You a Cyber Smart Parent?
With our kids online more and more these days we absolutely must be present and know what they are doing while online. Check out the BGCA’s Cyber Safe Site to find out if you are a Cyber Smart Parent. They have tons of great parent resources such as quizzes, cyber safety resources and CyberTribe Q&A.
BGCA’s Cyber Safe Futures is bringing initiative in support of Internet Safety Awareness. They are here to help us learn important cyber safety topics like privacy settings, information-sharing, sexual predators, sexting and other potentially harmful activity. Cyberbullying has also become a major problem. Honestly, I even see it in adults like other bloggers. It is crazy to think people can actually act like this! The BGCA offers the resources to teach our children how to know if they are being cyberbullied.
Be involved with your children. Ask them questions and monitor their online activities!
Be sure to take their quick quiz to try your #cybersafety skills!
Plus, be sure to check out the weekly teen CyberTribe Q&A in partnership to Sprint. Ask questions to expert teens and get advice on anything related to Cyber Safety. Everyone who submits a question is entered for a chance to win an iPad mini and $500 to the Boys & Girls Club of your choice! There will be 3 winners! Go take the CyberSmart Parent Quiz for your chance to win!
Here’s an example of a question I asked about my son:
