How do or did YOU teach your children to surf the web safely? My children are still young so it’s something I’m constantly worrying about. We didn’t get the internet in our home until I was 10 years old and the internet just didn’t have as much to it at that time so raising children surrounded by technology and the internet with us wherever we go seems like it will be a challenge.

The More You Know Learning Series, in collaboration with NBC News, has launched Growing Up Online, the FREE eBook for parents to keep their kids safe on the Internet!

Our kids have never known a world without the Internet. They’re spending more and more time on the web, so teaching them about using technology responsibly and safely is critical. Use the #GrowingUpOnline Blog App and take the quiz to see if your child is ready to safely surf the web!

Download the FREE Growing Up Online eBook and be sure to watch all four entertaining comic book stories as a family, which show real situations that may occur when your kids go online.

This free eBook provides easy-to-use information that addresses the growing concern about kids’ online privacy and cyberbullying in a unique and engaging way. Growing Up Online is packed with important tips that every parent should know!

  1. Congratulations, you’re ALL SET FOR THE NET!

    Taking the time to talk honestly about Internet safety with your children means your kids are up to speed and web wise. Well done!

  2. My son is still pretty young but he sees that our computers are in the open and we spend time together on the computer.

  3. My daughter is only 2 so I haven’t had a full conversation with her about it. But, whenever she does get to use things like I sit with her and help her use it so I can see what she does (and also so she doesn’t mess up our computers. 🙂 ).

  4. My children are too young for the computer yet but when they are old enough I plan on keeping our computer in the living room only so we can monitor their activity. Also using parental controls and talking to my children about what is and isn’t acceptable.

  5. teach them not to give out personal info and check search history and put on child filters and put computer in living room.
