This Article is about a California School District that paid a company to monitor its students’ social media for signs of violence, bullying, truancy, drug use, and suicidal thoughts. This is a good idea, but should be used as a supplement to parental attention. Parents:
1: Keep the family computer in a common area, where you can keep an eye on your kids.
2: Be aware of who your children are friends of online.
3: Make them friend you, whether they like it or not
4: Make them give you their passwords, whether they like it or not
5: THE MOST IMPORTANT: Tell your kids that if anything happens to them that doesn’t feel right, they can come to you without and prejudgement! Listen to any concerns they have.
