Digital Citizenship: It’s Not Just for the Kids Anymore!

If you’ve read the comments section of an online post or article lately, you no doubt understand the importance of digital responsibility and digital citizenship. While we parents may be good about reminding our kids to think about their online behavior, it doesn’t hurt to remind ourselves to THINK, too. Before you comment, tweet or post, ask yourself, is it...

  • True?
  • Helpful?
  • Inspiring?
  • Necessary?
  • Kind?

Of course, we can challenge our children to do the same. I believe we can ALL work to be better digital citizens.
