Step 2: Talk about how children can stay safe on social networks and the importance of privacy:
- Explain to your child how to use the safety functions on social media
- Talk about online privacy—including the dangers of oversharing. It’s good to share sometimes, but children should be aware of oversharing and how that could affect their reputation, now or in later life
Not everyone online is who they say they are. It’s important that your child knows that there are a lot of fake users, online predators, and people looking to steal information. Your child should be vigilant against strangers seeking to meet up or receive money.
