How to tell your child that you’re not afraid of the internet?
That they’re going to get bullied and that the world’s coming to an end.
I know it sounds stupid, but it’s true.
If you let your child know that they’re not alone and that there are people out there who are afraid of them, they’ll stop asking for help.
The truth is that the internet is a place where bullies thrive, and there are lots of people out here who will not take the slightest bit of risk to get what they want.
The internet is also a place that encourages people to hide their true feelings, which is really dangerous.
I want to warn you that I know.
I’ve been online for a long time and I have seen people who are extremely rude and who are very cruel.
It’s really easy to get into a fight and get into trouble.
But it’s very, very hard to get away with something you’re doing.
Sometimes it’s not even worth the trouble.
The thing is, kids are often the only ones who have the ability to take care of themselves.
And it’s really important to teach them how to take responsibility for their actions.
Here’s a little tip that I’m sure will help.
If someone tells you that you’ve made a mistake or that they need your help, ask yourself, “Why did I make this mistake?”
And then think about why.
If they can’t say, “I was in the wrong,” “I should’ve taken a step back,” “It’s too late,” “What would I have done differently?”
Then ask yourself the same question, “What could I have learned from this?”
And it’ll be much easier to take a step forward.
There’s no reason why you should be afraid of being bullied.
There is no reason that you should feel bad about something that’s happening to you.
And when you have that understanding, then you can be a better parent.
You don’t need to hide it.
You do need to admit it.
I wish I had some simple advice for kids who are on the internet and think, “It won’t hurt, I’m a little old to be worried about this.”
But I’m not.
You just need to make sure that you put some thought into the things that you say, and you don’t get in a fight with the internet.
That’s what we need to be teaching our children, and that’s the kind of parenting we should all be.
