Free guide – How to keep your teen safe on the Internet

Net Cetera: Chatting with Kids About Being Online

This free guide from OnGuardOnline.gov tells parents and teachers what they need to know to talk to kids about issues like  Net Ceteracyberbullying, sexting, mobile phone safety, and protecting the family computer.

I’ve taken a look at this guide and like it. It’s sensible, straight-forward, and best of all, not fear-based. It contains positive messages about Internet use and real facts (what a concept!) It addresses parents of teens, who need different information than younger children.

Best of all, it’s FREE. You can order the print version of Net Cetera in English or Spanish. If you need lots of them, for your whole school, for example, bulk orders are available from the government printing office. Yes, your tax dollars being used for something useful!

There is a nice article about it in the The Christian Science Monitor if you need more information.
