Keeping Children Safe Online

The Internet can be a wonderful resource for children. They can use it to research school reports, communicate with teachers and other children, and play interactive games. Children who are old enough to swipe a screen can have access to the world.

But that access can also pose hazards. That’s why it’s important to be aware of what your children see and hear on the Internet, who they meet, and what they share about themselves online.

As with any safety issue, it’s wise to talk with your kids about your concerns, take advantage of resources to protect them, and keep a close eye on their activities.

We have added some useful links below that will help you keep you child safe online.
