As a parent, you have plenty of experience with teaching your child how to behave ethically. You’ve taught him or her to be polite, respect others and obey the law.
However, you may have encountered some challenges when it comes to the internet. Children today are digital natives, having grown up in a culture of technology that seems to be plugged-in 24/7. You may feel overwhelmed by your child’s maneuvering through the digital landscape and wonder how you can teach him/her to apply those same ethics to their online interactions.
When teaching your child how to behave ethically online, remember that many of the same ethical principles that apply off-line apply online as well. Just as before, youth should be polite, show respect and obey the law while online.
