Safeguarding Your Kids in The Digital Age

Safeguarding Your Kids in The Digital Age

How can we teach our children to use the internet safely? It’s a question I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. The advice I give my own family and friends is encapsulated in: “If you wouldn’t do it face to face - Don’t do it online!” For example, would you go up to a complete stranger and start a conversation? Would you be abusive to friends or strangers in a pub or bar? Just because you feel protected by the apparent distance a screen gives between you and the person you’re talking to, you must remember that online is still the real world.
