Most kids have never met their digital me. They join networks and adopt gadgets with ease not realizing that all their interactions are generating data. Online, shared photos, videos and comments may also be seen by colleges, employers, parents, teachers, coaches and advertisers. Their digital me contains all this information, the good and the bad, and it exists forever.
Although kids adopt new technology with ease, they still need us to point them in the right direction. Kids need to understand how to share the right information with the right people. As a mother of 3, I realize how hard it is to keep up with all the ways our kids interact online and all the different settings and controls available. That is where, I hope, Kids Privacy can step in. This is a blog by a parent for parents. Here, parents can find information and resources about how to teach kids to share smart and build a positive Digital Me.
