Internet Safety

Society is becoming more and more internet savvy and children are learning how to navigate the internet at a much younger age. While there is a lot of good that comes from the internet there is also a lot of bad. Therefore, it is important to teach our kids about how to be safe while using the internet. Here are a few tips about what to teach your children:

  • Protect your passwords
  • Do not talk to strangers in instant messaging
  • Do not open any unknown files
  • Make sure that anti-virus is always updated
  • Establish ground rules such as: no internet unless a parent is home, when and for how long the internet can be used, what type of websites are appropriate, etc.
These are just a few suggestions. If you are interested in more go to the website, "Internet Safety for Kids" found at
