Online Safety for Tweens and Teens — Twitter Party with SafetyWeb

by Janice

With news about teenagers going to jail from sexting or committing suicide from cyberbullying, trying to keep tweens and teens safe on social networks can be overwhelming for parents.

While the Internet isn’t to blame — kids have probably been torturing one another since time began — it is important for parents and kids to know how to appropriately use this new space, and most importantly, how to stay safe online.

(And as mom bloggers, we know it isn’t only kids that are targeted through social media. This online playground can be nasty for kids and adults alike.)
