S.M.A.R.T. Parenting Tips for Online Safety

Safer Internet Day Logo 2024

Good Morning Everyone:

As many of you know, I am passionate about educating others about internet safety and the risks that are posed to our kids online. I firmly believe that most risks that our kids are exposed to have some connection to digital technology. As such, we must continue to educate parents and encourage them to engage their kids in regular conversation regarding online risks.

Next week, February 6th, is Safer Internet Day. I encourage all of you to use this day to remind kids and their parents to communicate with each other about proper use of the net. Attached you will find SMART tips for parents. These documents are easy to read and filled with great tips and resources for parents.

My contact information is below in case you have questions.

Stay Safe!
