Cell phone and internet usage by children is increasing at a rapid rate. With that comes the need to teach our kids how to navigate their way around all the possibilities at the end of their finger tip.
There are many fantastic resources online for parents, teachers, and children themselves to acquire the knowledge needed to stay safe, and to teach us how to best use the internet to its fullest capabilities. Since there is SO much information out there it is sometimes difficult to find what you’re actually looking for. We have found a very informative and well laid out website, best of all it is a Canadian website! It is called Mediasmarts.ca it is a WONDERFUL place to look around for information.
There you will find information of all kinds. I have included here a few quick links for different topics that may be relevant to your specific needs, or just click the link above to go to the main page and you can do your own digging around.
