Sometimes, it's not what we do online that brings the greatest threat, it's what our kids do, often unwittingly.
It's amazing how quickly little kids pick up on technology! From
toddlers to teens, touch screens, mobile devices, and the Internet will
be as natural a part of their lives as televisions and microwaves are
for the older generations. That's why it's important to start teaching
our kids about online safety and privacy from an early age. It is vital,
and not only for their own safety. The privacy and security of all your
family's Internet/mobile activity can be at risk if the online actions
of your youngest members aren't considered.
There are many great resources to help you understand the threats
posed to your children and what practical steps you can take to instill
responsible privacy practices from the moment they begin accessing
online content. We've linked to some great resources below and encourage
you to check them out and have a conversation with your kids.
