Time to Get “Social Smarts”

I have just received a link to an excellent post on a topic especially close to my heart, and which links very nicely to my earlier post Moral Dilemma or Just Old Fashioned?  Written by Joey Sargent, it is an Open Letter to Teens, Tweens and the People Who Love Them, highlighting the hidden dangers of using social media and the fact that we need to be CAREFUL online!

Please read this post for yourself.  I take no credit for it but I think it is excellent and just reinforces the fact that we need to guide our children in their online behaviour, teach them the facts and show them how to be responsible Cyber Citizens – parents and teachers alike!
