Safety – Internet and Social Media

Children and teens that have access to the internet and social media outlets on phones, computers, or tablets are in danger of exposure to inappropriate content, cyber bullying, online predators, identity theft, sexting, and more.

Some general safety measures you can take to keep your kids safe include:

  • Set parental controls to restrict access to inappropriate sites
  • Learn to monitor search history in all devices
  • You should know your child’s passwords to all of their accounts and devices
  • Model good behavior
  • Talk to your teen about appropriate and inappropriate activities and sign a contract
  • Remember – AAP recommends no screen time for children under 2
