Our children live in an age of unprecedented digital connection. They sms, mms, tweet, post, like, digg all aspects of their life and their thoughts. They are sharers and keep in touch with their friends almost instantaneously via their mobile devices and computers.
All their communications and information is going online, not just in their sms messages, or photos posted, or words tweeted but in online game chat rooms, liking Facebook posts, comments on blog articles, images uploaded via mobile apps that own the data they are uploading and the list goes on.
How do they know who has access to this information? Have they secured access to it properly? Should it have even been posted online at all? As a parent, have you had discussions with your child about what digital reputation is and how your child can manage their online image? As a parent are you aware of different ways to manage online access in your home to foster a balanced use approach?
