It’s National Cyber Security Awareness Month in the United States and each and every one of us needs to do our part to make sure that our online lives are kept safe and secure by being aware of how the technology we use every day actually works. That’s what Savvy Cyber Kids is all about. As parents and teachers, we have a responsibility to guide young people, who are spending a large part of their lives immersed in the digital realm, with a comprehensive cyber ethics education. Cyber ethics topics include privacy, safety, digital reputation, self-image, technology addition, cyber predators, bully response along with other topics.
October has been a busy month at Savvy Cyber Kids. We have been fortunate to have had extremely engaging cyber ethics sessions at many schools, which gives us the opportunity to meet with students, parents, teachers, counselors and administrators. Learn more about bringing Savvy Cyber Kids to your school.
Savvy Cyber Kids cyber ethics sessions are always interactive in nature. Because of that, we get real-time insight into what is happening with technology in our lives. Here are some of the top questions we have received this month from the parent and caregiver sessions:
- At what age is it appropriate for my child to have a phone?
- At what age is it appropriate for my child to have a tablet?
- At what age is it appropriate for my child to use social media?
- What is the best parental control for me to use?
- How do I monitor all my child’s text messages?
- I keep hearing that my child is the only one that doesn’t have “X”? Is that true? (X being that latest social media app, game, phone, etc.)
