Net Cetera: Chatting with Kids About Being Online
Federal Trade Commission
This booklet gives adults practical tips to help kids navigate the online world. Kids and parents have many ways of socializing and communicating online, but they come with certain risks. This guide encourages parents to reduce the risks by talking to kids about how they communicate--online and off--and helping kids engage in conduct they can be proud of. It covers what parents need to know, where to go for more information, and issues to raise with kids about living their lives online. It examines socializing and communicating online, mobile phones, parental controls, and privacy. Special topics cover sexting, cyberbullying, texting, phishing, and peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing. A glossary is also included.
