I want my kids to be safe using the internet and social media! With a two teens and a tween now it is even more important to me because this is the age where kids start wanting to share on social media sites the most! We want to encourage them to share awesmome moments but we also want them to have no regrets about what they do share, in present day or in their future! I want them to enjoy the benefits of today’s technology but want them to be safe doing it. There is so much bad stuff out there and although we can’t protect them from everything we want to try!
I was so glad to hear National PTA has teamed up with Lifelock to help parents teach their kids about how they can #ShareAwesome while still being safe online. It’s all about having a happy, healthy lifestyle for you and your family! For you, your family, your friends, and the whole world – everyone benefits when you #ShareAwesome!
The #ShareAwesome campaign seeks to build an understanding among parents and students that no matter the device, the app or the networking site – the skills we need to be safe and positive online are similar to what you need offline.
To encourage all of you to #ShareAwesome, National PTA and Lifelock encourage all of you to snap a photo of an awesome moment in your day and share it on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the #ShareAwesome hashtag! Students who enter the #ShareAwesome contest between September 15 – November 30, 2014 will have a chance to win fantastic prizes, including tablets and a $2,500 scholarship! Visit ShareAwesomeNow.org to learn more.
I love what social media has done for us. It has created a way to help us connect over the miles with family members, share incredible events, and find friends we haven’t seen in years! However if it is not used in a safe, responsible way it can cause damage that can never be undone! This is a message all of our children need to hear.
