Learn about Growing Up Online and Win the Lorax on Blu-Ray/DVD #giveaway

Many of you might know that my 9-year-old son has his own blog. He started it initially to share his spooky stories. However since he won the 2013 Healthy Lunchtime Challenge, visited The White House to attend the Kids’ State Dinner and created his 3B: Brae’s Brown Bag project to help the homeless, he has been doing a lot more “real life” blogging. I’m super proud of him and want to encourage him to the fullest. However, I find it is now the time to talk about internet safety.

Right now he is of the age where I monitor everything he posts, Facebooks or Tweets. His project has a Facebook Page and we are both admins to it and we sit together to discuss what he would like to write. I’m hoping what I can teach him now about internet safety will carry over as he gets older and wants to have his own privacy. I’m really thankful for the Growing Up Online eBook because it is a helpful resource to help better explain all of this to a child.

Many of us have heard about or experienced “cyber-bullying.” We know the pain it can create. Far too often have we heard the stories of children being cyber-bullied who don’t know what to do or where to turn.

  1. I think kids need to pay attention to the photos they post. Especially the young girls who post “sexy” photos, it’s disturbing.

  2. I don’t think anyone under 18 should share anything online but being a blogger who is a one-woman reality show I share everything. I’m not sure about letting my kids on FB until their closer to their teens but they don’t have a good cause like yours.

  3. I think it is unsafe to share all of your info online. On facebook everyone has their phone numbers, city, etc. on there. I dont put my phone number on anything, I dont even have my email displayed.

  4. I don’t think kids should be sharing any personal information online, Even though I run a blog I never give info on where we live,her name ect.

  5. I love learning about other people. The only problem is there are some who will misuse that information. If it wwasn;t for those few then it would be awesome to know everyone online.

  6. It’s actually pretty scary how much information is out there! I try and keep my settings so not just anyone can see my stuff. I’ve gotta know them!

  7. I think people add whoever to have a lot of friends. People need to stick to adding someone they actually know!

  8. I feel like some people share WAY too much online. And cussing is crazy bad. Sigh! kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

  9. I believe everyone needs to be conscious of what they put online, because want’s it’s out there, there’s no turning back! Teens kill me especially (and some adults as well) by the things they post, it’s like do you seriously not know what you’re subjecting yourself too?!

  10. Once the information is out there, its out there whether one deletes it at some point or not….I am stunned at what some people post on social media…

  11. I think it’s a personal choice …However, I see things that make me uncomfortable on their behalf sometimes.
