The Internet and social media sites are great ways for
families to stay connected. But do you know how to navi- gate through the risks online to keep your family safe? Parents are reminded of the need to
Safety first on the Internet
be aware of what to watch out for when their kids are on the Internet – viewing inappropriate material, sexual exploita- tion and cyberbullying, as well as frauds and scams. Instilling real-world judge- ment and online etiquette in your kids can go a long way in keeping your whole family safe. Internet and social media safety tips: * Think twice before posting informa-
tion and/or photographs. Once online, information is out of your control and cannot be retracted. * Talk to kids about the dangers of sharing excessive in-
formation. If advertising that a family is on holiday by writ- ing on the front door or living room window is not OK, why put that type of information online for the world to see? * Lying about an age can result in your child receiving
advertisements directed to an older audience. * Remind youth that cyberbullies feed on negativity.Th
e best way to make cyberbullying stop is to ignore the online bullying environment and report it in the real world to school or authorities. * Parents shouldn't be afraid to venture into social media.
You may want to take this on with your kids and learn to- gether how to navigate the content safely. This will help you get to know what your kids are doing online. Encourage "cool-down" times and putting away devices when opportunities for family time arise. * Don't make your passwords obvious and change them frequently.
