Netsmartz Tips week of April 20

Help children use webcams safely
Teach children to think carefully before revealing themselves on video because it is impossible to predict how those videos might be used to embarrass or exploit them. Talk to your children about reporting any uncomfortable situation and reassure them that they are not helpless.
• Keep the computer and webcam in a public area of your house and strictly supervise your child’s usage.
• Discuss what information is allowed and not allowed to be shared online.
• Talk about appropriate and inappropriate uses of a webcam.
• Start a dialogue about the possible consequences of sharing too much personal information or displaying inappropriate behavior on a webcam.
• Create a plan of action if someone makes an inappropriate solicitation.
• Emphasize the importance of telling you or another trusted adult if anything happens to make them feel scared or uncomfortable.

Netsmartz Tips - week of April 13

Start a discussion with your child

Use these discussion starters to get an Internet safety conversation going with your children. The more often you talk to them about online safety, the easier it will get, so don’t get discouraged if they don’t respond immediately!

Can we play some of your favorite games together?
How do you respond if someone bothers you while you are gaming?
How much do you let people know about you while gaming?
What kinds of people do you game with?
Do you feel safe while you are gaming online? Why or why not?

Lewisville ISD Spring Safety Reminder

As spring approaches, we want to take time to remind our parents to visit with your children about safety. The weather is warming up and many students walk or ride their bikes to school during this time of the year. Please take this opportunity to remind your child(ren) to be aware of their surroundings and encourage them to travel in groups to ensure safety from those they may not know. Additionally, remind them to report anything that causes them concern to a trusted adult. Student safety is a top priority in Lewisville ISD and together, we will keep our children safe.
