Many of you might know that my 9-year-old son has his own blog. He started it initially to share his spooky stories. However since he won the 2013 Healthy Lunchtime Challenge, visited The White House to attend the Kids’ State Dinner and created his 3B: Brae’s Brown Bag project to help the homeless, he has been doing a lot more “real life” blogging. I’m super proud of him and want to encourage him to the fullest. However, I find it is now the time to talk about internet safety.
Right now he is of the age where I monitor everything he posts, Facebooks or Tweets. His project has a Facebook Page and we are both admins to it and we sit together to discuss what he would like to write. I’m hoping what I can teach him now about internet safety will carry over as he gets older and wants to have his own privacy. I’m really thankful for the Growing Up Online eBook because it is a helpful resource to help better explain all of this to a child.
