It’s incredibly sad that its’ even necessary to talk about this subject, but 1 in 3 teens has been a victim of some sort of Cyber Bullying. With four young children, one of whom who is rapidly approaching the legal age to be on social media, I know I need to start preparing her to be safe online.  Despite 13 being the legal minimum age for children to have their own social media accounts on facebook and instagram, {there is no  minimum age for twitter!}, I know many of my daughter’s friends {she’s 10} who have their own accounts already. It’s time to start teaching!

Frankly, the statistics I shared above scare me. I’m glad to share information with you today to help you keep your own kids safe online. It’s never too soon to start educating your children about the dangers they will likely face online.
