Tips

How can I guide my children on using social networking sites safely?

Educating yourself is the first step to help your child use social networking sites safely.  

• Start by reading the tips about kids’ online safety on JustAskGemalto.
• Familiarize yourself with some of the popular sites for kids in their age group.
• Encourage your child to come to you with concerns or questions.
• If they see anything online that makes them uncomfortable, make sure they understand that you won’t think they did something wrong or punish them by taking away Internet privileges, a big reason why many kids don’t talk to their parents about online problems, according to FBI-sponsored National Crime Prevention Council.
