As parents, teachers, staff and Bishop Dwenger Family, we always need to help, encourage, and support each other. As our children grow older and we give them advice, and sometimes we get the typical teenage response, "Mom I know." or "You told me before." I encourage you to sit down with your youth, and talk with them about their use on the internet.
We need to be aware what our youth are doing on the internet. As well as how much time they are spending on the internet. The school year is back into full swing and mid terms are just around the corner. During the school year, it is good for us to set limits for our youth on how much they are surfing the internet or on social media. Setting time limits for our youth also allows us to help them with time management for their academics, extra curricular activities, home responsibilities and family time. Yes, family time. How many times a week are we sitting down at the dinner table together as a family and spending time together? Family time is a great way to connect with each other, talk and laugh together. Even us adults need to put our electronics away.
I encourage you to also revisit with your youth about internet safety. Several agencies like Indiana State Police, and National Crime Prevention Council encourage parents to monitor their youth's internet usage. We need to be aware of what social media they are using. In addition, what are the websites they are visiting. We also need to have reminder conversations with our youth about what is appropriate and not appropriate to say or "post" on the internet.
You will find attached various documents to review and share with your family.
