  • Ask your child questions about what they do online, such as what sites they visit and who they talk to.
  • Monitor your child’s internet activity and social media accounts.
  • Make use of the internet as a family activity to teach your child appropriate online behavior.

Set some ground rules

  • Set boundaries for how long your child can spend online and what they can do.
  • Adjust parental controls to suit your child’s age and maturity.
  • Keep computers in a common area and monitor your child’s activity.
