Online Safety for Kids

A fellow Silicon Valley Moms Group blogger posted about the dangers of social networking and one of the commenters linked to a page on Oprah.com that discusses online safety:

Oprah.com - Online Safety Rules for Kids

Those rules are something EVERY parent should not only read themselves but share with their kids. Here are a few other sites with valuable resources for Online Safety:

Thanks for posting this Beth. GREAT resources! I think about this all the time with a 10 yr. old at home. It's important to be aware and armed with information. Thanks.

Hey Techmamas,
Oprah's tips are good and the sites you listed have some good info - but a lot of it is regurgitation. No one ever provides CONCRETE solutions for parents. If you REALLY want to keep your kids safe online, you need to know what they are doing on the computer. Blocks and filters are easy to get around, but if you have monitoring software, like our PC Pandora (www.pcpandora.com), you will know everything they do and will be able to talk to them about it. If you aren’t monitoring and don’t know what they are really doing, how can you be sure they are safe?
