Internet Safety Tips For Children
The Internet can be a wonderful resource for kids. They can use it to research school reports, communicate with teachers and other kids, and play interactive games. Any child who is old enough to punch in a few letters on the keyboard can literally access the world.
But that access can also pose hazards to your children. For example, your 8-year-old might log on to a search engine and type in the word "Lego." But with just one missed keystroke, he or she might enter the word "Legs" instead, and be directed to thousands of web-sites with a focus on legs - some of which may contain pornographic material.
That's why it's important to be aware of what your children see and hear on the Internet, who they meet, and what they share about themselves online.
