Staying Safe in a Cyber World
Parenting educator, Michael Grose has developed the following cyber-safety tips to help children and teenagers to be safer in the online world. Please ask your parent or guardian to read these tips with you and to explain anything that you do not understand.
- Respect Others: What you send can offend others so always be careful to make sure your messages will not cause harm or offence.
- Think before you send: Cyberspace is a very public and permanent forum and once a message goes out it cannot be erased in most cases. A message can also be forwarded on easily to an unlimited amount of other children and this can lead to embarrassment or disagreements.
- Treat online passwords like your house key: Passwords should never be shared, even with your most trusted friends. Of course sharing with your parents is OK, but you should always treat passwords carefully.
- Block bullies: If children receive bullying messages they should try and block them. These can often be filtered using the software or online sites with privacy settings.
- Don’t reply to harassment: Any response you make can be shared or manipulated, so it’s best to ignore any harassment. Responding often makes the situation worse.
- Save the evidence: If a child is bullied or harassed then keeping copies or screen shots or offensive messages can be used in dealing with bullies and bringing them to justice.
- Tell someone: Often bullying can be a covert behaviour and kids on the receiving end don’t seek help. Children should be encouraged to tell a trusted adult when they believe their safety or rights have been violated.
Remember to be smart and safe online. Always ask your parent or guardian for permission before you give out any personal information. This could include your full name, email address, home address, telephone number, where you go to school or any other information about yourself that would enable someone to contact you either online or offline.
It is important to look after your computer at home. Before you download anything to your computer, make sure that your parent or guardian is happy for you to do so.
As we live in an ever changing world, always be vigilant of your own personal safety, let your Parents know of anything around you that doesn’t seem right.
