"There is a well-founded concern among parents and in our schools about social media based cyberbullying leading to suicides among our preteen and teen children. Who hasn’t come across one of these terribly sad stories? Maybe you even know of such a story from your local area?
This is surely a case where an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
I spent a few hours this weekend searching for tips and techniques to help educators reduce the likelihood of social media driven issues with their students. Combining what I learned with suggestions from the great staff at Kinry Road Elementary School, and my own personal perspective as a parent, I developed this list of approaches to help parents and educators limit incidents and issues by tackling the problem head on.
