Friendly Reminder About Internet Safety

We've posted on Kidding Around before about internet safety, but we felt it was time for a reminder about keeping kids safe online. Here again is our post about internet safety, with some additional links added at the bottom:

Now that school is underway, the phone is ringing off the hook and the computer is always in use. Whether for personal enjoyment or homework, the computer has become an everyday part of the typical American home. It can be a blessing as long as you know how to keep it safe for your children.

Check out the Illinois Attorney General, Lisa Madigan's website for some great information and tips about internet safety as part of her 'Safeguarding Children' campaign to have every child grow up in a safe community.

You might also want to look at some internet safety software that blocks inappropriate content on computers and cell phones here, or check out the KidsHealth website to find out more about what you can do as parents to keep your child's internet experience safe.

Want to learn even more? Visit the PTA's website to access materials like their Internet Safety Checklist for Parents. The National Crime Prevention Council's website has helpful information about keeping girls safe online and a guide for parent's about social networking websites, as well as other information.
