Whether it’s for education, entertainment or staying connected with loved ones, our kids are spending an increasing amount of time online, making it more important than ever to begin educating youth about online safety as early as possible and setting clear guidelines on how to safely navigate the online world. Through its Public Education program, the Rogers Cybersecure Catalyst has curated some tips and guidelines to help you support your child’s online safety through three different stages: kids, youth and teens.
From a young age, our kids are already quite familiar with using apps to play online games, to watch videos or to talk with family and friends. It’s important to frame your discussions on online safety around the devices and apps that they use in order to build understanding and develop strong practices and habits.
As our kids grow older, their lives shift even more to an online presence – whether that’s online learning, gaming & entertainment, or staying connected with their friends. It’s important to ensure that you have the guidelines and support in place so both you and your child feel more secure while online.
Ask a teen to imagine their lives without the internet – or without their phones, tablets, laptops or smart devices. Seems pretty impossible right? While it’s great to be so connected to the world, there are also hidden dangers to be aware of. That’s why it’s so important to be able to recognize and avoid the risks to stay safe online.
