Soon after kids start reading and writing, they often begin interacting with others online. Whether they're chatting within games or texting family members, kids need the skills to interact respectfully. These skills will help kids -- and the people they're communicating with -- have positive experiences online. Throughout December, be on the lookout for these 4 Family Tips for elementary families who are looking to build a strong foundation for online relationships and communication!

1. Give them the right words.
2. Play a game of telephone.
3. Help kids navigate online friendships.
4. Develop their instincts.

So much of kids' social lives happens online.

These skills will help kids -- and the people they're communicating with -- have positive experiences online.

Give them the right words.
Learn about their worlds.
Empathize with the pressure to overshare.
Develop their instincts.
