Internet (Cyber) Safety

The Internet has created a highway of information that is easily accessible from your home or office. Unfortunately, it has also created some new dangers, especially to children and teenagers.

Tips
  • Take advantage of online providers' "Parental Control" features to block inappropriate materials.
  • Monitor your child's time online - if your child becomes upset about your monitoring, this could be a sign your child is engaging in inappropriate activities.
  • Talk to your children about issues that concern you.
  • Most importantly, never allow your child to arrange a face-to-face meeting with another computer user without parental permission.
