Let’s Talk Honest About Social Media
Carroll Institute Counselors Barb DeVos and Kacee Redden will provide two presentations on Cyber Bullying and Digital Reputation on Thursday, April 19, 2018 during parent-teacher conferences.
Times: 6:00 PM- 6:40 PM and 7:00 PM- 7:40 PM
Overview of the presentation:
How do I know as parent if my child is experiencing cyber bullying? What does a “digital reputation” mean? What kinds of things can affect my reputation on the internet? How do I keep my child safe on the internet? Cyber bullying peaks in 7th and 8th grades. Students as young as elementary age report receiving mean or rude texts from friends or through interactive gaming. Nationwide 21% of students ages 12-18 experience cyber bullying. Agreeing on clear rules about when your child can use her mobile phone, computer or tablet can help avoid cyber bullying.
