Here are some great resources and posters for parents who are concerned about their children’s digital activities. Please take note that these topics are appropriate for different age groups.
Although our school-issued devices already include a web filter, we know that our children are using smartphones as well as other computers which have less restrictions outside of school.
It is important that your child is taught to talk to a trusted adult after being exposed to content that makes them feel uncomfortable.
Ask your child what apps he or she is using and monitor their digital activities. If they are allowed to use an app, verify that their settings are set for maximum privacy.
