Talk to Your Teen About Responsible Online Behavior

Talk to Your Teen About Responsible Online Behavior
November 6, 2016 GWHS

Most teenagers use electronic devices and social media, and it’s important to teach them how to behave appropriately online. Take this as an opportunity to discuss how the digital age has improved our lives, and then remind your teen how a person’s online footprint lives on in the virtual world, and that almost nothing can be erased once it’s posted. For example, you can talk to your teen about people who have lost their jobs because they posted something inappropriate, and tell her that many recruiters look at online profiles when making hiring decisions or college considerations.
