Internet safety resources for parents and teachers

An important consideration is to keep computers and smartphones out of the bedrooms and allow their use ONLY in common areas such as the living room or kitchen.  Another suggestion is to have a NIGHT LOCATION for phones and other electronics, where your child places his/her phone or device at a set time each night.  This means that sleep isn't interrupted by gaming or text messages or the compelling temptation to communicate using social media or to late-night surf or play games. 

 

Don't be afraid to ask questions, ask to see their gaming stats or social media or better yet have them "friend" you.
