General Body Meeting Summary- 10-16-2013

Summary

The purpose of this meeting was to provide Cyber Bullying information and resources for parents and delegates. 


Cyber Bullying

Cyber bullying is real in Loudoun County. There was a recent case of a child predator impersonating a child via a gaming console with internet access. Thankfully the child reached out to her guidance counselor after which the Sheriff's Department investigated.


Cyber Bullying Tips

TIP #1: if your student must have a phone don't get the data plan. Decrease their ability to connect without your oversight. They can connect to WiFi at home.
TIP#2: make the child’s profile private on social media sites
TIP #3: don't forget that their phone is YOUR phone. You bought it as a parent and are ultimately responsible for it
