Chatting With Kids About Being Online

Are you looking for a way to become as internet-savvy as your young children and teens? A publication from On Guard Online may be just what you need.

In the booklet Net Cetera Chatting With Kids About Being Online you’ll find advice — in large print – on a number of topics. Everything from how to initiate a conversation with kids about computer use and internet etiquette to what to do when someone engages in cyber bullying.

Recommendations are offered for how to have such conversations with young children, tweens and teens.

Issues like how to avoid phishing scams, privacy preferences, what personal information computer users should and should not share are also addressed. The booklet also educates parents about their rights according to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. Under COPPA, the Federal Trade Commission mandates that website operators get a parental okay before “collecting or sharing information from children under 13.”
