We understand how confused parents are today with so much happening in the world of social media and how difficult it is to assist your child develop solid online reputation skills when you lack the knowledge yourself. We as parents are finding it a struggle to keep up and often feel an information overload. When this happens, our negative tentacles react and usually we react in a negative way to what is actually best for our children.
We also understand that as an adult it’s sometimes difficult to come to terms with the fact that our kids are quite simply much more tech and digitally savvy than we can ever hope to be; but we can do something about it and Social Ediquette makes it easy for you.
Would you like to:
■ join the digital revolution but don’t know how or more importantly are too afraid?
■ keep your child wrapped in cotton wool so much so that it has a negative impact on their wellbeing? (I hope the answer is no to this one!)
■ see some good Facebook stories in the news; just for a change?
■ gain the edge with your kids on an informed level and have a win-win for everyone?
■ know some clever little ways to allow your digital native to learn social media in a controlled environment?
■ know what to do and who to call if your child gets into strife whilst online?
Now, we know that you know that there are inherent risks with your child having an online presence from a young age, but there are steps you can take to minimise the risk.
