When was the last time you thought about these cyber basics?   When was the last time that you talked to your child, tween or teen about them?

Cyber Basics


  • Computer devices are a privilege not a right

  • The delete key doesn’t make your cyber life disappear


  • Think before posting anything online such as images and comments because they can impact future employment and other opportunities


  • Treat people online as if you’re face to face.  If you wouldn’t say something to their face, don’t say it online!


  • Be mindful that what you post online can go viral quickly


  • Treat others the way you want to be treated online.  Report offensive behavior!


  • Be careful about over sharing and sharing personal information


  • Know in real life the “friends and followers” that you are engaging with online
