There’s something new over on the right sidebar of my blog.
Microsoft has just released a brilliant quiz to help parents learn how to recognise when kids are involved in bullying online. The quiz takes you through five online bullying scenarios, designed to help determine whether the conduct is that of a ‘bystander’ or an ‘upstander’. There are also links where you can get helpful tips on correcting negative and reinforcing positive behaviours.
Online bullying is such an important topic, and as parents we have a responsibility to talk with our children about appropriate online behaviour and set clear consequences for misuse.
Take the quiz (it's at the top of the right sidebar) and please forward the link to this post to other parents who you think might benefit from this important information.
