Perhaps you feel there isn’t much you can do to protect your kids from online dangers. But you already have half the battle won if you’ve educated your kids about those dangers. Many articles are available online that tell all about computer criminals and online predators. Depending on their ages, you can direct your kids to these articles. Or, you can read them together. Either way will help them understand why they need to be careful. Internet service providers may also offer security tools that block questionable sites from children’s eyes. Placing your computer in a common area of your home can help you keep an eye on their activities, as opposed to having computers in their rooms. Also, it’s a good idea to be aware of the warning signs of contact with an online predator, such as withdrawal from family life and reluctance to discuss their online activities.
