New Federal Guide Provides Steps for Parents to Keep Children Safe When Online
In an effort to increase online awareness and safety, different federal commissions partnered to produce a book titled Net Cetra: Chatting With Kids About Being Online.
In Net Cetera: Chatting With Kids About Being Online, OnGuard Online gives adults practical tips to help kids navigate the online world. It addresses many topics that children should be aware of in using the Internet, including safe use of social networking sites (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace). It also touches on how to deal with cyberbullying, and how to protect computers from viruses and spyware.
Kids and parents have many ways of socializing and communicating online, but they come with certain risks. This guide encourages parents to reduce the risks by talking to kids about how they communicate – online and off – and helping kids engage in conduct they can be proud of. Net Cetera covers what parents need to know, where to go for more information, and issues to raise with kids about living their lives online.
