Cyber Safety and our Children - Adventures With Ellie

Cyber Safety and our Children

“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for BGCA. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” 

With Summer upon us and having the kids home I know that they will want to head online a bit more then usual especially my teen and that is where BGCA comes in to help. They also have a section for kids of ages of 5-9 which I have as well.

As they stated on their site If growing up in the digital age is tough, being a #cybersafe parent isn’t easy either. That’s why Boys & Girls Clubs of America, in partnership with Sprint, has assembled our CyberTribe of expert teens — to answer your questions on the issues facing kids online, like cyberbullying, mobile device safety, online privacy and personal data sharing, especially on social networks. Because every teen deserves a #cybersafe future.

For me I found this site really helpful to get more information as to what I could do to get more information not only for myself  but for my child as well. It really is a site full of resources that I was actually learn information that I could share and teach my children. 

I especially liked they have a glossary where you can not only check on something like chat acronyms  that parents can check if they see something on their something their child might be writing to someone online.

For me it is important to make sure my kids are safe especially with my two younger ones who are 7 and 11 have ipods and have games on their ipods that they can enter chats with other players I want them to be aware of dangers and always know to come to me or my husband if they feel someone is harassing or not being appropriate in any cause but now with the cyber world being such a big part of kids lives it's important they know this too. That there is "stranger danger" on the web too. 

Right now if you go visit BGCA you will be able to submit your own question to the CyberTribe of expert teens who are on call to respond You ask, they answer. Plus, after you submit your question, enter for a chance to win an iPad Mini and $500 to a local Boys & Girls Club of your choice!

Hope you are able to go check out the wonderful and useful information that is available and share the knowledge with your children.
