This presentation addresses ongoing Internet safety issues affecting children, such as sexting and cyberbullying. Due to the widespread availability of the Internet and mobile technology, the sky-high hormone levels of young people, and the difficulty that they can have understanding the consequences of their decisions, sexting and cyberbullying incidents are occurring among tweens and teens all over the U.S. Media stories and statistics are used throughout the webinar to illustrate these behaviors. Participants are also introduced to invaluable, free safety resources from NetSmartz Workshop that are easily implemented to help teach children, tweens, and teens how to stay safer online and avoid these situations.
