Parent Empowerment

Parent Empowerment


The key to online safety for young children: relationships and conversation. Have conversations with your child about limits, online usage and setting good habits. Set the tone of your relationship with your child concerning the online world early.  Deliberate conversations and developing a relationship that your child perceives clearly as involved and interested in important.  Leave the door open for quesitons!

We recommend that parents:

  1. Know that it's okay to say no.  Everybody else is NOT doing it.
  2. Keep laptops and compters in common spaces in the home.
  3. Clarify and communicate our family's norms. (Be aware you are modeling your own usage).
  4. Expect that other families' usage will vary -- and make it okay to limit online activity or games during a playdate.

Student Empowerment

Technology is an important part of our children’s future and this is our opportunity to help shape their digital citizenship. Becoming a good digital citizen is just as important as becoming a good community citizen. Giving our children guided opportunities allows them to be safe while they explore their presence in the online community.


The following is a living list of resources to help us navigate the online lives of our children.  If you have any links you would like to be on this guide, please talk to Namita, Stacy, or Celeste.
