“It Doesn't Go Away...”

June is National Internet Safety month and it's a good time to talk with kids about what they should and should not do with the internet.

To get the message across, actors with Completely Kids did a little role playing at the Omaha Boys and Girls Clubs at 27th and Hamilton Tuesday afternoon.

The play covers internet topics for upper elementary and middle schools students, including cyberbullying in the form of social media retaliation, and appropriate online and texting behaviors.

Many kids don't understand that what they put on the internet stays on the internet.

“it doesn't go away,” Carmen Bunde of Completely Kids said. “Even if you think you can delete it, you can't and it can affect you both personally and others in the long term. It can affect if you what you post can affect if you get on that sports team that you want or whether you get the job that you want or scholarship to go to school. It can have a real impact so they have to be more responsible than ever if they have access to this media.”

The troupe will visit the Boys and Girls Clubs in Council Bluffs Wednesday between 2 and 3pm.
