Being online is part of kids’ lives. The Federal Trade Commission has a new publication that talks to tweens and teens about what they do online, and how the choices they make matter. Living Life Online offers short articles, activities, quizzes, and an ask-the-expert column, all to help kids learn how to be good digital citizens. Kids find out how to stay safer online, how to use critical thinking skills - and how to apply them to the advertising they see all around them. Parents will find worksheets and information to encourage discussion with their kids, and kids can go online to find out their tech personality. With topics as varied as how to handle bullying and cell phone bill shock, Living Life Online helps kids learn to make good decisions as they live their lives, whether online or off.
