Internet Safety and digital citizenship needs to be a part of our kids' culture at home, at school, and anywhere they go. It's up to all of us to model safe, responsible behaviors online, to discuss what it means to be a digital citizen, and to stress how important it is to treat others with respect. Our kids need to be able to advocate for themselves in sticky situations and know they have a trusted adult they can turn to with questions and concerns.
Let's keep them savvy, safe, and strong.
