As January is the safety month, we at Gem Parenting have looked at internet safety as one part of real family safety.

  • This weekend take time to be sure you have the right controls for your kids use.
  • Learn how to monitor what has been done on the computer.
  • Be sure you are aware of what your kids do on line and
    how much time they spend on line.  One good measure is through the “A Parent’s Guide to Internet Safety” brochure published by the FBI task force on Internet Safety and the Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

I really want you to take some time to be sure you and your children are fully aware of the dangers of the Internet.  When you know the dangers of things then you can be wary of them.

When I was a kid,  there were conversations about how to monitor TV and all that was available there.  With the web there is much more available, both good and bad.  But there is no need to panic.  Be sensible, realistic, and respectful. 

************************************************************

As far as finding great things to do on line here is my favorite sites KidSites.com.  There are all kinds of wonderful things to do and none of them are about printing worksheets to do.

You can follow this link to a ton of great things for children to do on the web:
