Safeguard your child onlinecomment (0)

June 11, 2009

- Develop a trusting relationship with your child early, and keep the door of communication open.

- If you have reason to suspect your child is viewing inappropriate sites, then do not overreact. Carefully approach your son or daughter in a nonshameful, nonthreatening way.

- Keep your computers in heavy-traffic areas in your home, and spend time with your child as he or she surfs the Internet.

- Be familiar with Web sites your child visits as well as social-networking services such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.

- Know your child’s online friends.

- Always maintain access to your child’s online account and check history files often.

- Use a pre-filtered Internet service provider (ISP). Check www.FilterReview.com for help.

- Get to know and use the “parental controls” provided by your ISP and/or blocking software.

- Teach your child about responsible use of the resources on the Internet.

- Teach your child that the Internet is a good source for educational, recreational and creative searches but also contains potential hazards.

- Teach your child to alert you immediately when he or she accesses something on the Internet that makes him or her feel uncomfortable — no matter what it is.
