Here are six steps to keep your child safe online:
Talk to your child.
It’s important for your child to know the benefits and risk of the world wide web. They should know that they should never talk to strangers online, add people who they don’t know on their social media accounts, and that they should never meet someone from the Internet without discussing it with you beforehand.
Keep the computer in a family room.
It’s important for your child to access the computer in an area where you can monitor what they are doing. This way, you can check in to see what they’re doing.
Know your child’s passwords.
The best way to be sure of what your child is doing is to check their accounts. Make sure that you know your child’s passwords so that you can check their accounts and monitor their messages if you grow concerned.
