In an ideal world, parents need to be as involved in their children's online world as they are in their physical world. Our kids get in the car after school and we ask them how their day was. And what we're really focused on is how they did on a test or who they sat with at lunch. But what we really need to be thinking about is what's new in your online world too. What's new on Instagram? What did you put out there about yourself today? Did somebody else tag you in image? Did you add a new follower to your account? Do you have a new friend in your network? And when we as parents start to get more involve din our kids online worlds, then they stop thinking of it as their own private space. And they know that the same behavior that they follow in the physical world is the behavior they need to follow in the cyber world. That's really the only way we're going to get our children to better understand that their behavior online has consequences for everybody.
