Kids today are growing up in a world that’s cybercentric. It’s impossible to avoid children’s eventual introduction to the Internet and all things digital. But it is possible to keep them secure and avoid risks while teaching kids how to be safe online. It starts with the right strategy, and these tips can help. To recap, here are the most valuable takeaways for keeping children safe online:.

Talk to your children about the potential dangers that they may face online. Move your children’s computers to a common family room if possible. Try to make the computer a shared family experience. Encourage your children to talk to you about anything they experience online that upsets them or makes them feel uncomfortable. Restrict the content that can be accessed via the computer:.

Many Internet security solutions can help you to do this. Internet Explorer includes a Content Advisor that can also help. Provide guidelines that let your child know what they can and cannot do on the Internet. For example, your guidelines could tell your child whether they are permitted to:.

Register with social networking or other websites. Make online purchases. Download music, video, or program files. Use instant messaging programs. Visit Internet chat rooms. If your child is allowed to use instant messaging and / or visit chat rooms, it’s worth explaining to them that it’s dangerous to chat with or send messages to anyone that they don’t know and trust. Download and install the latest security patches and updates for all your devices as they come out. This includes your operating systems, apps, and other software. Install a rigorous antivirus product that’s capable of defending all of your families’ computers and mobile devices against malicious programs and hackers.
