I certainly think young kids (elementary age) should be taught about “stranger danger” online. This is a generation that is going to grow up without knowing what the world was like before web 2.0 … and they should realize that everything you post, no matter what, stays online forever. I think there are a lot of teens out there right now that don’t realize that the pictures they think are “funny” could come back to haunt them later, but I think these kids also don’t understand that posting their home address or phone number can get them into other kinds of trouble, as well. As with most things, schools and parents should work together to keep kids safe.
