Internet Safety Tips for Parents

As the internet becomes more and more widespread, many parents are wondering about the safety of their children and the dangers of their presence online. Teenagers have so much access to content on the internet, it’s often difficult for parents to determine how to control it.

Read the following tips on how to stay aware of your child’s safety online:

  • Limit usage of the internet. Much like parents have guidelines on how much TV kids can watch, they should also set a limit on internet use. Don’t be afraid to set an average time limit each week. Even with set rules, there will be plenty of times you won’t be around to watch what your children are doing online, so consider setting a password on your computer or checking your online history.
  • Set rules on social media usage. If you are nervous about your child interacting with others and even strangers online, discuss an age limit for social media. Determine what sites they can and cannot have access to, and create an age range when they can have access to social media sites.
  • Watch out for cyber bullying. Keep an eye out for cruel comments from your child and other children online. Make sure that your teens aren’t using the internet as a means of bullying others, or being bullied themselves.
  • Communicate as a family about personal information. It is important to discuss as a family what information should stay private. Your address, phone number, and email are personal information that should not be given out online. Make your family aware of the dangers of online predators and how giving away too much personal information could harm them.

Keep your family communication lines active about computers. It is important to have an open discussion about how you’re using the internet. Don’t be afraid to talk to your kids about the potential dangers of the internet before a problem arises.
