Every day technology is now a part of our lives. With that being the case it’s important to instill safety in an online world. However, we don’t have to scare our kids into submission. I’ve taught my kids that they should be who they are in person online and doing that promote good digital citizenship. Kids today are smart and talking down to them doesn’t work anymore. Instead let’s bridge the gap and have genuine conversations with them.
For example. We celebrate the good in our life. From graduating and winning awards to simply a fun family day or the perfect sunset. The things that make us smile in other words. Simply put: #ShareAwesome
National PTA has partnered with LifeLock to share awesome ways families can create an open, evolving conversation about positive, safe decisions when using digital tools. It’s all part of having a happy, healthy lifestyle. For you, your family, your friends, and the whole world – everyone benefits when you #ShareAwesome! The #ShareAwesome campaign seeks to build an understanding among parents and students that no matter the device, the app or the networking site – the skills we need to be safe and positive online are similar to what you need offline.
