Cyber Safety Booklet for Parents and Kids

  • Cyber Safety Booklet for Parents and Kids

     

    A new booklet recently released by the Federal Trade Commission and
    other government agencies helps parents and teachers steer kids safely
    through the online and mobile phone worlds.

     

    The booklet, Net Cetera: Chatting with Kids About Being Online
    was unveiled at Jefferson Middle School in Washington, D.C. by FTC Chairman Jon
    Leibowitz, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, and Federal
    Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski.

     

    Net Cetera tells parents and teachers what they need to know to talk to
    kids about issues like cyberbullying, sexting, mobile phone safety, and
    protecting the family computer. Talking to kids about these topics can
    help them avoid behaving rudely online; steer clear of inappropriate
    content like pornography, violence, or hate speech; and protect
    themselves from contact with bullies, predators, hackers, and scammers.
