Being online is almost unavoidable in 2018. There are several ways for kids to use the internet, which can include playing games, learning, and watching TV shows or videos. While these things can be fun for kids, there are also many things on the internet that aren’t appropriate or safe for children. Here are some parenting tips to keep kids safe while online.

Check out our parenting tips to keep your kids safe while online.

1. Password protected: If your kids are using a device whether it’s a phone, computer, or tablet, make sure you put a password in before handing it over to them. If they’re older make sure you know all of their passwords so you can be aware if something goes wrong.

2. Limited website access: When your kids are younger there are certain things they shouldn’t see while online. Restrict certain websites or words that might trigger inappropriate search results. When the kids finish with the device, check the history to make sure everything they were doing was safe.

3. Be prepared to talk if something goes wrong: Even while being protected, certain harmful aspects can still appear. Have a conversation with your kid(s) explaining that what they found wasn’t their fault and you’re now able to talk to them about it if it happens again.
