Everyone is online these days. There are online sites geared to even the youngest web surfers, and I have to be honest - as a parent, thinking about what sort of things my kids can stumble upon online it is a huge concern. While it is tempting to keep the kids as far away from the internet as possible, I think the more sensible choice it is to educate them on how to use it safely. 

NetSmartz is a great resource for parents, kids and teens to learn how to use the internet safely. "Stranger danger" has a whole new meaning in the internet age, and NetSmartz helps parents and their kids learn how to navigate the web safely. Tutorials on instant messenger, password safety, downloading files and cyber-bullying are a just some of the resources available. 

The internet isn't going anywhere anytime soon, so you need to check out NetSmartz. Let's educate and empower kids, and allow them to benefit from all the world wide web has to offer. And at the same time, let's keep them safe from the dangers that lurk there as well.
