  5. 3Cs of Digital Citizenship: Appropriate Contact Teach kids how to have healthy and appropriate relationships online and explain your expectations for whom they communicate with online. Help them to recognize and protect themselves from cyberbullies, hackers, phishers, and predators. Explain to them that we never really know who is on the other end of a communication. Appropriate Content Communicate clearly your expectations for acceptable content. Is it healthy, responsible, ethical? This includes content that is both viewed and uploaded by kids. Help them understand that the Internet is forever: Everything they post online can be tracked and stored and will follow them to future job interviews and college entrance interviews. Appropriate Conduct Teach kids appropriate online behavior. Help them understand that everything they do online contributes to their online reputation. Because the web can feel anonymous, some youth become uninhibited online. Help them be the good person online that they are offline.
  6. Protecting Your Kids Online Set ground rules when your kids can go online, what sites they can visit and how many texts they can send a month Research before you buy. Did you know that handheld games can connect to the Internet or that many laptops have built-in web cams? Understand the technology you are bringing into your home. Report cyberbullies, predators or other inappropriate messages to law enforcement and your Internet/cell phone provider. Supervise Internet use. Have the computer in a central location in your home and not a child’s bedroom. There are safeguard programs that can be purchased to monitor your child’s Internet use, but nothing takes the place of regular conversations with your child about their online habits. If you don’t know something, ask.
