Keep current. Keep communicating. Keep checking™.

The  iKeepSafe website has three easy steps for parents to help keep their children safe online:

  • KEEP CURRENT with the technology your child uses. You don’t have to be an expert, but a little understanding goes a long way towards keeping your child safe online.
  • KEEP COMMUNICATING with your child about everything they experience on the Internet.  Know their lingo, and ask when you don’t understand something.  Work to keep the lines of communication open.
  • KEEP CHECKING your child’s Internet activity.  Know where they go online. Let them know that you’ll keep checking because you want them to understand that the Internet is a public forum and never truly private. Everything they do online contributes to their digital reputation. Help them develop an online reputation that is an asset rather than a liability.

Great advice from the US non-profit alliance organisation.
