Using The Internet Safely and Responsibly
The Most Important Teacher … the Parent!
Three Important Truths
- You are the most important leader in your child's life. What is a leader's first responsibility?
- The rod of the shepherd is not for beating the sheep. "Our ability to manage a child effectively is very much an outcome of our capacity to manage ourselves." (Gordon Neufeld, M.D. and Gabor Mate', M.D.) How does relationship play a role in Internet Safety?
- "Raising kids is part joy and part guerilla warfare." (Ed Asner) We must identify the issues that require a teaching intervention, devise a working game plan, and then stick to it. Where do we begin?
