We’ve all heard the saying, “Knowledge is power.”  Perhaps we should also consider that, “Knowledge is safety,” especially when it comes to our kids and social networking sites.  These resources include information about all of these sites, to help prepare us to provide structure for our kids while they’re online.  Please take the time to look over them and talk with your kids about the information.  Social networking can be a really fun and positive experience.  But like anything else, it can also provide challenges for us as parents, and for our kids.
