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.  Instead, ask them to show you the social networking site and how to use it -- getting involved will empower them to share the experience with you and share what they see on the sites, according to http://www.thinkuknow.co.uk.
