Parent Resources: Cyberbullying and Digital Citizenship

Social networking sites, chat rooms, virtual worlds, and blogs are how teens and tweens socialize online; it's important to help your child learn how to navigate these spaces safely. Among the pitfalls that come with online socializing are sharing too much information or posting comments, photos, or videos that can damage a reputation or hurt someone's feelings.

Applying real-world judgment can help minimize those risks. Here are resources to help you and your child discuss responsible digital citizenship and help make their online lives safe and secure.
