Parking Lot: Please Help
Please remember that we do not allow students to cross the parking lot without an adult. If you pick up or drop off your student and need to use the parking lot, you must park your car and escort them. Our parking lot is busy and it is not safe to allow our students to cross without an adult. Thank you for your cooperation.
The last basic to cover during “the talk” about digital safety is:
STAND UP FOR OTHERS.
If someone’s getting bullied or picked on, speak up, report it, or reach out.
Younger kids: Make sure kids know they can come to you for help. Teach them how to flag misbehavior. Ask: What would you do if you saw someone being mean online or in a game?
Older kids: Give kids tools to use in a crisis. Ask: If someone was being mean to you online, what would you want your friends to do? Do you know how to flag or report bullying on a social network or in a multiplayer game?
Boundaries With Kids
Here are a few words from authors Cloud and Townsend. Lesson number one in parenting and life is “growth involves pain.” Lesson number two is “not all pain produces growth.” Learning to tell the difference is the key to having someone stay on the bottom, or grow past where he or she is. The parent who hears every cry or complaint as the ultimate concern will never develop boundaries and character in the child. When your children cry about homework, chores, or a missed opportunity because they did not do their part, what are you going to do? How you answer this question will have a tremendous effect on the course of your child’s life. Cloud and Townsend. (1998). Boundaries with Kids. Grand Rapids, Michigan: Zondervan.
