Brownsville Church of Christ Prevent Bullying
Brownsville Church of Christ
Back to School – Preventing Bullying 

I have been speaking and presenting on the prevention of Bullying,
Cyberbullying, Sexting and the inappropriate use of texting for
several years.

Through the use of incorporating traditional blogging, video blogging,
Social Media platforms, and other platforms and tools I try to share
the reasons and realistic concerns why children, youth, teens and young
adults bully.

Each incident no matter how small creates an atmosphere of fear and
uncertainty in a young persons perception(s) of safety and even belonging.
Bullying is not a rite of passage to manhood or womanhood, it does not
build character or bonding.

Bullying is hurtful, mean, sad and creates long-term psychological
damage.  Emotional trauma and even the inability to trust and love
has resulted in some cases.

Below is a video that was created and produced by myself to show
that bullying should not be tolerated, but it should be treated with
compassion and care.

Links to my bullying blogs over the years are provided.
Feel free to use the resources to empower children, teens and young
adults and even to educate parents. Parents are usually the last to
know that their child is the bully or that their child is being bullied.

Education is important and observation. Parents unfortunately do
not know their children as well as they think they do so the
accumulation and engagement in relationships is important to
establish and maintain between child and parent.

Parents Google and Hashtag Your Kids

Parents Google and Hashtag Your Kids
by William Jackson, M.Edu.
Educational Technology
Edward Waters College

The increase of youth, teens and young adults having
un-monitored access to the Internet is creating
situations where youth, teens and young adults
are being cyberstalked, cyberbullied and cybersexted.
Just as in cities and towns there are good parts and
there are parts you do not want your children going.
The Internet is wide open and is a reflection of our
society. It is global, diverse, cultural, alternative
lifestyle, entertaining, educational, enter and edu
/tainment resource. There is so much eye candy that
teens and young adults are being hypnotized by the
glitz and glamour of having their content either
picture/video going viral.
Going viral has the potential of making the person
instant superstars. Parents must be very cautious
of their children’s access to online content because
it can literally cost them their lives.

There are laws available like COPPA and others, but
it comes down to parents establishing rules and
realistic behavior expectations when it comes to
Internet access and using the platforms and tools
that are easily available.

15 Online safety measures to keep kids safe
1.Parents monitor your child’s online activities.
You should be aware of where they are going just
as if they are walking their neighborhoods.
a. Children’s psychological safety is just as
important as their physical safety.
b. Have conversations about their favorite sites,
who their online friends are, what social media
platforms they are using.
c. are your children using video to share information,
are they using Google maps to tell their friends where
they live? These are questions parents need the
answers too.
d. Talk to educators and other parents about
sharing educational, and edutainment resources.
2. “Know safety, No injury. No safety, Know injury.”
Parents should be involved in determining how much
tech is being used by their children in their homes.
3. Help your child build a positive relationship
and respect for their online activities.
This respect decreases bullying, cyberbullying,
and sexting.
4. Parents must model good online behaviors.
If your child sees you acting ignorant and
disrespectful they will do the same.
Your children are also influenced by peer
pressure and modeling realistic expectations
for behavior by you.
5. Set a time limit for being online, more
emphasis on reading and other activities that
challenge thinking, reasoning and higher order
thinking.

6. Don’t be naive, consider the source when your
child is trying to blow smoke as to why they
need extra time online. Check the taskbar to see
if multiple windows are open.
7. Teach your children to know how advertisers
work. No to click ads that say free games, candy,
toys, etc.
8. Sometimes ask your children to teach you something
new online. Test their intelligence and intellect
with technology.
9. Google your child or children, Hashtag
your child, YouTube your child once a month
Google:  First Name Last Name + City, State
Hashtag: ”                                 ”
in Twitter
10. Even though it should not have to be said,
teach your children not to put personal information
online.
Identity theft is a major problem in this digital age.

11.Check parental controls in your browser and learn
how to check your browsers history to see where the
kids and teens have gone online.
12 If your children play online games monitor the
language and conversations. You can’t control others
and their actions and language, but you should
be able to control your child to a certain degree
and talk to them about behaviors of others.
13. Each Social Media site has an age restriction.
I have talked to 10 and 11 year old students with
Facebook, SnapChat and Vine accounts. Some are too
young to handle the language and adult situations
they are exposed to.
14. Be friends with your kids until they are 16 at
least. Don’t stalk them, but monitor behaviors and
actions.
15. The online experience should help to build social
skills. “Treat others as you would like to be treated.”

Teach your children about online pornography, teach
them about the realistic work in establishing
relationships not through the use of porn and sex.
The internet can be like the wild wild west, parents
must use caution, common sense and intuition to
understand what is happening with their children and
their online experiences.
