Online Safety

Do you know what your child is doing online?

As a parent, you want to make sure that your child uses the Internet safely. Most parents know that the Internet can be a dangerous place, but they are not sure how to protect their child. Communicating with your child is essential. Ask your child what they do when they are online or using their devices. Especially with young children, it is important to monitor Internet activity, texts and use of social media apps. As a parent, it is your responsibility to establish guidelines, boundaries and consequences.
