Online safety is a big deal, especially with all the crazy viruses out there. In order to save yourself from some whiplash symptoms and bad system errors, here are some tips to keeping your computer safe, especially with your kids and pre-teens.
First, write up rules for the Internet and keep them right by the computer. Perhaps even turn it into a pledge for the whole household to sign so everybody recognizes the rules. Children-friendly web sites cannot request personal information without a parent’s permission, so make sure to tell your children what personal information is and explain why they should never give that out to anybody online.
Also go over why they should not meet people outside of the Internet. Place the computer in an area where everybody can see, that way you know exactly what your kids are doing online and what web sites they are going to. These few tips should help out with online safety in your own home.
