Internet Safety at Home
Kids and teens are spending more time than ever on the Internet because of the remote learning situation and stay at home orders. They are not only using online platforms for learning but also for socializing. While your child is at school, we have several layers of protection to avoid contact with inappropriate web sites or online predators. Since you may not have features like this in your home network, you will need to be especially careful. We are providing you with some Internet Safety resources that you can read and share with your child.
Since we are all working hard to be safe in so many ways, please don't forget "Internet Safety"!
Families and teachers everywhere trust Common Sense for expert reviews, objective advice, helpful tools, and so much more.
Your trusted guide for a fast-changing world.
Media and technology are at the center of kids' lives every day. From a very young age, kids use technology at home and at school to connect with friends and family and to document their lives and create digital content of their own. With more and more of life happening online, what catches kids' attention isn't always what's best for them, and what companies do with their personal information isn't always clear.
