“Gain control of your time, and you will gain control of your life.” John Landis Mason
Knowing how to manage social media use is essential; we must teach our children to protect themselves in the virtual world. During this class, we will help our students work out the following:
How they want to behave and be treated by other people online;
An understanding of the risks involved in using social media – for example, risks like being tagged in an embarrassing photo taken at a party;
An understanding of the dangers involved in sharing content and personal information – this includes not only content that your child shares but also images of your child that other people share, or posts and images that others tag your child to;
How to navigate the risks – for example, if your child posts an identifiable image of herself, she can reduce risk by not including any other personal information;
Knowing what to do if people ask for personal details, are mean or abusive online, post embarrassing photos of them, or share information that links back to them;
How to manage their own digital footprint – for example, we will discuss what your child would like their digital footprint to say about them now and in the future.
