Being a parent has never been easy, but it can be even more challenging once your kids are using the internet. Even if you’re not up on the latest technologies and platforms, though, you have an important role — maybe the most important — in your kids’ online lives. This guide will prepare you for the conversations you need to have with kids when they first start using digital devices, as they grow and their online activities change, and when things go wrong.
The guide is divided into three sections that each deal with a different aspect of digital citizenship, to teach your kids to Respect People’s Feelings, to Respect Privacy and to Respect Property online.
