Tell A Trusted Adult
Safe Site Strategies
I have talked with your children about Safe Site Strategies when using Web Browsers and the Internet. In this lesson I talked to your children about the concept of being safe online. We brainstormed about being safe at home and how those ways are similar to being safe online. We discussed kid-friendly websites (raz-kids, pebblego, brainpopjr, book flix, starfall and tumblebooks) and things that make websites inappropriate for kids (pictures, words, advertisements etc). Most important is how to navigate away from those inappropriate sites by clicking the home button or turning off the computer screen. Lastly, I showed them a video on netsmartzkids.org. This website was put together by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. I encourage all parents, grandparents or other trusted adults to visit this site with their little ones.
