INTERNET SAFETY

How to keep your kids safe online

June is Internet Safety Month, which focuses on raising awareness about online safety, particularly for kids and teens. Here's some free resources to help you protect your kids online.

Internet Safety Month

 

It's a tough job being a parent, especially these days. You can't keep an eye on them 24/7, so educating your children about how to stay safe, both online and off, can feel like a huge task.

The goal of Internet Safety Month is to raise awareness about online safety, particularly for kids and teens. To help you protect your children online, here are some free resources to get the conversations started.

 


Federal Trade Commission

The Federal Trade commission has put together a pretty comprehensive list of online safety topics. They include everything from how to talk to your kids about cyberbullying to social media to video games.

With these free resources, starting a conversation about how to stay safe online might get a little easier.

For the complete list, click here.

 


 

Common Sense Media

Common sense media offers a lot of cool, informative, and free resources for parents, educators, kids, and teenagers. All with the aim of promoting online safety.

Your kids can watch fun videos about how to stay safe online, parents can read about online privacy and internet safety. There's even a full (and free) curriculum of ready-to-teach lessons for grades 3 through 8.

The internet can seem like a large and sometimes scary place, for parents and for children. But it doesn't have to. With a little help and some heart-to-heart conversations, you can start educating yourself and your children about what to do and what not to do online. Check out some fun online safety games to get the conversation started.

We believe safety and education help keep our communities strong, safe, and happy. And we hope these free resources do the same for you and your family.
