Our Lives Online – Social Media Calendar

We meet many people online. Some, we may feel we have known for long. Others we feel we can trust. Should parents know about our online friends?

Let’s face it. The youth today are digital natives and most parents are often playing catch up. As uncomfortable as this may be for a parent, social media is here to stay. This does not mean parents need to be absent from their children’s lives online. An open and healthy communication helps to build a more resilient bond.

Like adults, children too have many interests. Often, different social media accounts are created to cater to different interests and needs. As adults, we need to be mindful of how we balance safeguarding – between giving them space and keeping them safe.

Are you a gamer?

Children and young people love playing games online – now a major way of exercising your right to play and sometimes also the right to learn. And a fabulous way to keep connected with friends as we found out during the recent MCO.

But is there a dark side to Gaming? Wrapped within the fun of games, and the game of meeting people online, lurks underlying risks of self-harm, suicide, violence, grooming, and sexual exploitation.

The world wide web is a playground for many things. Not all of them good. Whilst some online encounters can turn into strong, healthy friendships, others may turn sinister. In 2019, UNICEF spoke to children in four East Asian countries (M’sia, Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia). More than half of the children spoken to had met someone in real life, they had initially met online.

How do we enable the young to make informed choices? How do we protect our children while still giving them space?

Some of us have had bad experiences online that we would not want to talk to anyone about. Many times we have ignored and blocked requests from strangers. Has this happened to you too?

When children aren’t able to confide and discuss things with us, Dr Google is there to help. The question is, will Dr Google be a good substitute to a real-life discussion? How do we encourage healthy curiosity yet still keep them safe?

Dr Google is pretty amazing. Information that may take us hours to search about someone is now at the tip of our fingers in a matter of seconds! The challenge now is how do we know what to share and what not to share online?

Cyberbullying is NOT okay. All forms of bullying are NOT okay. Hate speech and hurtful comments are NOT okay. Uploading or sharing explicit, violent or inappropriate images and video content are also NOT okay. What can we do to make the internet a safer and enjoyable place for all?

LOL. I am ROFL. HBU? Well, the digital vocabulary glossary of our young are growing at a rapid rate. As guardians, we need to face technology head on. We don’t have to agree with it, but we should be aware of what these acronyms mean to our children. We may even find one of two specially crafted for us!
