Some Tips… for Parents
- Make sure your child does not spend all the time on the computer. Help your child to find a balance between computing and other activities (e.g. Sports)
- Discuss the rules, get your child agree to adhere to them, and post them near the computer as a reminder.
- Remember to monitor your child’s compliance to the rules, especially when it comes to the amount of time your child should spend on the computer.
- Computer-related activities should take place in an open area (e.g. living room) so that you can monitor from time to time, to make sure that he/she is viewing appropriate material. However, you should build the trust with your child, hoping that he/she would have good judgement to know what is right or wrong.
- Know your child’s experience with the computer and exactly how extensive their knowledge of the Internet is.
- Encourage discussions between you and your child about what they enjoy online.
- Make sure that your children feel comfortable coming to you with questions. Do not over react when things go wrong.
- Find out what e-mail and instant messaging accounts they have.
- Teach them what information they can share with others online and what they cannot (like telephone numbers, address, their full name, and school). Check your children’s profiles, blogs and any social-networking posts.
- Get to know their "online friends" just as you get to know all of their other friends.
- Warn your child that people are not always what they seem to be. Discuss this with them and be open. By having open discussions about safety, dangers and advantages, and disadvantages, you and your child can learn from each other.
- Do not deprive your child of the Internet. Acknowledge the benefits of the Internet and review these advantages with your child.
