In order to be safe online, it’s important for you and your kids to be aware of the dangers of Internet. Many kids are self-assured that they know how to be safe online. However, there are a few reasons kids are often more at risk. They may not always think about the significances of their actions, which can cause them to share too much information about themselves. Kids also are sometimes specifically targeted by cyberbullies or predators.

With children increasingly exposed to digital media and online technology at an early age, parents play an important role in imparting the necessary knowledge and skills to keep them safe from online dangers.

Below are some general tips you can use when teaching your kids about online safety:

>Learn everything you can about the Internet: Being familiar with the Internet will not only help you understand the risks, but it will also help you talk to your kids.

>Set standards for what your kids can and cannot do online: It’s important to make rules for your kids so they know what’s expected of them. Don’t wait until something bad happens to start creating guidelines.

>Teach your kids to keep personal information private: It’s usually a bad idea to post personal information online such as phone numbers, addresses, and credit cards. If criminals gain access to this information, they can use it to harm you or your family.

>Talk to your kids about Internet use: Talk to your kids regularly about how they use the Internet. If they’re in the habit of talking to you about the Internet, they’ll be more willing to come to you if there’s a problem.

So, try the above tips and keep your kids safe while using Internet.
