emails or texts. Tell your parents,
teachers and even the police if need be.

screen or monitor.
2. Parents: Monitor what your child
reads and emails. You as a parent need

system. Move the computer where you can
observe what is being watched. Install
programs available (many free) to help
protect those you love.

your students signs of stress. Often
they will exhibit their concerns and
distress in both obvious and not so
obvious ways. Work with them and their
parents to gain self confidence and
trust in their own self worth. Remember
the greatest thing one teacher can give
a student is a solid foundation.
