Growing Up Online Ebook, Blog App & The Lorax Blu Ray Giveaway

My kids have been using the computer for quite sometime now, and teaching them about online safety is just as important as teaching them about stranger danger.  

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!

We are "all set for the net"! That makes sense because we have always monitored our kids' internet usage.

We lecture! LOL...well, we do, sort of, but we try to have regular conversations about what they're doing, where they're going, and what their friends are doing online.

I'm a net novice. I find monitoring search history and limiting computer access are good ways of keeping kids safe online.

Jennifer Young said...

I got "net novice" on the quiz. We monitor our girls online and have set tabs with their games on them and they know that's the only thing they are allowed to go on!
