5 Myths and Truths About Kids' Internet Safety

I came across "5 Myths and Truths About Kids' Internet Safety" by Caroline Knorr. I think you will find it helpful and enlightening. For example, here are the first and second myths and truths:

"Myth: Social media turns kids into cyberbullies.
Truth: There are many reasons why a kid might cyberbully, and social media is just a convenient way to do the dirty work.
The reality is that kids who engage in this behavior typically have something else going on that compels them to act out. They might be in crisis -- at home, at school, or otherwise socially. They may also be bullying in person, or they may have an underdeveloped sense of empathy. Awareness of a cyberbully's circumstances -- though not excusing the behavior -- can help parents and educators recognize the warning signs and potentially intervene before it goes too far.


Myth: Teaching kids not to talk to strangers is the best way to keep them safe online.
Truth: Teaching kids to recognize predatory behavior will help them avoid unwelcome advances."


Click on the article above, read the other three, and see if you agree.

After completing educations students were usually very much focused on decorating their resume with all the tit-bits and hefty things they have done so far in their education career,
but most of them forgot to add the weightage to their resume.When it’s about adding something to your CV or resume it is not about a heavy and attractive
career objective or the curricular activities you have done in your college days; of course it is important too, but what actually makes sense for organization is;
what more you can do apart from the traditional work. Here is where the courses like digital marketing is needed.
