Keeping Children Safe Online

Keeping Children Safe Online

TIPS:

  1. Remind children not to post anything online without your permission e.g. family pictures,
    email address, phone numbers, and videos.
  2. Remind them information posted online cannot be removed, it is there permanently.
  3. Keep your privacy settings as high as possible.
  4. Never give out your passwords.
  5. Don’t befriend people you don’t know.
  6. Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online.  Speak to your parent or care-giver about people suggesting you do.
  7. Teach them about online predators. Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are.
  8.  If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried, leave the website, turn off your computer and tell a trusted adult immediately.
  9.  Set house rules. Decide how much time you are comfortable with your children being online and which sites they may go to.
  10.  Parents know what your children are always doing. Supervise! Supervise! Supervise!
