Internet Safety In the Classroom

Is internet safety being taught in your child's classroom? Check out this article -- has anyone seen this?

As I have said earlier, teaching kids about internet safety is so important and think that it should be a must at schools -- would love to hear if your school does anything

Internet Safety

Our school (North Carolina charter school) has computer classes several times a week for all classes K-12, and they do teach internet safety. It is important too that as parents we teach it too. I was a child abuse prevention specialist in Dallas, Texas before moving here, and that was something our program covered. But, as parents, we can certainly teach our kids to be very careful in chat rooms. They are dealing with strangers just as they would in real time.

I agree, internet safety is something that parents and teachers should definitely focus on and that is great to know that your children's school teaches internet safety -- you hear of all these horror stories of kids being kidnapped and you never think that it could initiate in your own home.

Scary to think about but it really happens -- check this story out about a man who pretended to be a teenager on the internet and ended up breaking into her house and killing her. So disturbing
