Go on line with your kids and find out what they are doing?  Take an interest and help them understand why some sites are inappropriate.

It is not uncommon for kids to know more about computers and what is on the Internet  than their teachers and their parents so TEACHERS and PARENTS talk to your students about the Internet.
In 2013 and 2014, it can be very difficult for kids to stay safe while interacting on FaceBook, in Game rooms,  or Blogging, Tweeting, and Texting.

Cyberbullying and Bullying

Social Networks Sites and Activities

Pros for Teachers and Students using Social Networks

Teachers can more effortlessly reach out to a student in need.

Students can have Instant learning and homework support from teachers.

Teachers can create a no excuses environment.  Just because students are home doesn’t mean they can’t participate in activities that they miss.

Students like the fact that adults are connecting with them using real-world tools that students and teachers both need to know how to use effectively in order to be more successful in this electronic based world of today.

Social Networks can be a learning portal for classroom with more and more students using
portals for learning instead of just personally conversing face-to-face with others.

Social Media Encourages Collaboration Instead of Cliques
Cons for Teachers and Students Using Social Networks 

Students may have problems transitioning from face-to-face interactions with teachers to on-line interactions.

The most common place for cyber bullying to happen is on Facebook.

Once someone deletes information from Facebook, it does not disappear.

Students and teachers both have a potential for on-line stalking and/or cyberbullying and harassment.

It is very easy for a comment to be misconscrued and may cause a negative effect on potential future employment or for teachers even in their present employment.

Preconceived opinions about others prior to knowing them.

Predators abound on the sites (sexual, identity-theft, etc.).

One mistake on the Internet on a social networking site or other chat and blog places can never be deleted.

It is important to also know the risks that come with social networks and to always be wary of possible problems that may develop as a result from social networking.

         Cyber Bullying Activities

“Cyber bullying is the use of modern communication technologies to embarrass, humiliate, threaten, or intimidate an individual in the attempt to gain power and control over them.” (Glenn R. Stutzky)

Bullying is all about power, the imbalance and abuse of power.

Bullying is not a personality conflict; it’s abuse.

Advice for Students Who are Being Cyber Bullied

Ignore them- We already mentioned this. If you reply or respond to a message from a bully, he or she will know what they did worked on you. If you respond in kind , it will just show that you are not better than the bully. So the best thing to do is to print the message, file it, and then delete it from your PC. There is a saying, Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
Contact the Service Provider- If you feel that the cyber bully has gone overboard, then you should already tell the moderator or service provider of the site about it. If cybermonsters are already faking your name or making a profile under your name without your knowledge, you can ask your service provider or moderator to remove the profile or email.
Change your Online ID -One way to get away from a cybermonsters is by changing your screen name and email address. Be sure to give the new email address and screen name only to your trusted friends. Also, block any messages from strangers or those that are not included in your contact list.
Report IT-If you receive threatening emails or if your reputation and credibility is already being undermined, then you should tell your parents and ask your parents to help you report the bullying to the school or even the police.

Note to PARENTS-How can you help How can your kids with Internet Safety?
The best thing you as the parent can do is keep the lines of communication open with your kids, so you know what they're doing online – and so they'll feel comfortable coming to you if they get into trouble. Discuss the Internet with your child-no matter what age-and set up some Internet Safety Rules.
