How to Teach Kids Safe Online Behavior
If your kids have a close group of friends that they're online with a lot, you might want to gather the other kids' parents to develop some guidelines about appropriate online behavior that everyone can agree to.
Cyberbullying can be a kind of ecosystem where lots of kids get involved and actually play different roles at different times. One minute they may be the aggressor, the next minute they themselves are being targeted. Kids also act as bystanders and some kids act as "upstanders"—the ones who stand up to the bully. Talk to your kids about being the kind of person who stands up so they can help stop the cycle.
