Here are some TIPS to keep your child safe online:
T – Timeframe: Have a set timeframe that your child will online. Don’t just let them use the computer for hours on end. Give them limits.
I – Integrity: Use Your Family Online Computer Use Contract to determine how your child will act online. Instill in that child that he/she must act ethically and responsibly online.
P – Public Area: Keep the computer that your child uses in a public place. This will make it harder for the child to view inappropiate material
S – Supervise: : It is the parent’s responsibility to supervise their child online. We can’t wait for Mark Zuckerburg to make more privacy controls for minors or expect our government to monitor our children. It is up to the parent to be “all up in their kids business”.
