Online Safety: Parents' Guides from Connect Safely

Below is some great information from the web site about student online safety. This is a collection of parent guides to some popular sites/tools kids use. We all know our kids are going to these sites, and parents need to be prepared how to make their child's online interaction as safe as possible. Please remember, as a parent you are the last line of defense your child has in this area. You should be included on every post they make, every site they join, and every account they make. Log in and check history, interactions, and chats. It is not spying on your child; it is parenting. It is our job as parents and teachers to protect our children.
