Santa Cruz, CA (PRWEB) January 29, 2013
Bullying prevention and social media citizenship go hand in hand. Many times young people don’t realize that what they do or say online can have real world consequences. But in this digital age kids can be one click away from being a cyberbully, a victim of identity theft or the target of an online predator. Helping both parents and young people is the goal of these four new brochures. Educators and professionals can visit Journeyworks Publishing’s Bullying and Online Safety review pack page to request preview copies.
No matter where it happens, bullying hurts everyone. This means everyone must do what they can to prevent bullying before further harm is done. “Online or Offline: What Can You Do About Bullying?” is designed to empower young people to stand up to bullying. This pamphlet gives kids simple action tips they can use – whether they are the target, or they see or hear about someone else being bullied.
Teaching young people to do the right thing is a tough job and parents need all the help they can get. “8 Things Parents Need to Know about Cyberbullying” gives parents the basic facts about cyberbullying plus tips on what they can do to help children avoid cyberbully behavior and what to do if a child becomes a target of bullying.
“Social Networking: 10 Things Teens Should Know” helps promote awareness in young people about the possible dangers that exist online. In a simple-to-read format, this pamphlet provides an overview of what to watch out for, how to protect both privacy and reputation, as well as what to do if they are harassed or bullied online.
With access to digital media so pervasive in our society, the reality is that parents can’t always monitor what their child does online. In addition, as kids mature they will need to know how to stay safe on their own. “Social Networking Safety: 10 Tips for Parents” provides realistic tips parents can use to teach their kids about staying safe online.
