Online Safety

Do you know what your child is doing online?  What apps they are using? Who they are chatting with? 

Did you know that on any given day, teens in the U.S. spend about 9 hours using social media for their enjoyment? 

50% of teens feel they are addicted to their phones, 78% check phones once an hour

 (Commonsense, phone survey of 2600 teens, Nov.2015)

Some prevention tips

  1. Start young and check their devices (monitor what they are on)
  2. Be honest with them and tell them not all people they meet online are who they say they are and there are people online that hurt others.
  3. Create a media use plan in your home: 

This tool was developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics and includes a media time calculator that shows how much time your child is spending on daily activities, such as media use. 

     4. Create “What if” scenarios with your child about what could happen if they make poor choices when online
