Parent's Internet Safety Pledge
The Internet can be a fun and exciting place for your children and it is easy for them to get somewhat addicted. The Internet can also be frustrating and dangerous for your children. Show them how much you love them by becoming an active parent online in regards to keeping your children safe. Print out this pledge, saying it out loud to your children, and have you and your children sign it.
I will monitor my child online. I will not let them loose without the supervision of a responsible adult.
I will communicate openingly with my child. I will not avoid answering my child's questions on issues we find on the Internet together. I will make my child stronger by giving him/her knowledge.
I will teach my child how to use a search engine effectively. This will help to enhance my child's enducation as well as keep them safe.
I will set limits with my child on how long they can use the Internet. We will decided together on how many days a week and hours per day of Internet use.
I will use parental software. If I cannot be with my child every time they are on the Internet, I will use the parental software to protect them from viewing inappropriate material.
I will pay attention to what my own Internet behaviours are teaching my children. I will not model inappropriate or dangerous online behaviour.
I will never ignore my child when I am on the Internet. My child comes first. I will turn off the computer when my child needs my attention.
