Internet Safety for Kids
Internet safety is a big concern to parents. One in four children will be exposed to online porn by accident each year doing innocent things such as homework. Also, studies show that close 62 percent of teens say their parents know little to nothing about what websites they visit.
So what should parents do? Spencer Thomason, the co-founder of Clean Router says Parents should be aware of what their children do online and should take steps to prepare them. He says parents should know about online privacy controls.
He also states that Google has recently made changes to safe search that made content available that used to be filtered. Spencer also says you should ask your child's school about how they monitor web activity and how to control Internet access across multiple devices. Finally, talk to your children about their behavior online and what they should to if they come across pornography or cyber bullying and how to conduct themselves online. In addition, know how they use the Internet outside of the home. Talk to your children's school about how they regulate their Internet activity and if they might be vulnerable after these new Google standard.
