As parents we are always concerned about what our children are getting up to, whether online or offline. The online environment can feel confusing and is ever changing, and with our busy lifestyles running errands, picking up the kids and taking them to various activities who has time to keep up? It’s important to keep everything in balance.
As a parent is so easy to feel overwhelmed by the amount of information online and the ease of accessibility to that information. You know there are dangers, but how can you protect your children?
Before your children establish their online behaviours and presence, it is vital that you as the parent take the time to understand the spaces they are playing in – so you can be there to guide them on the journey.
What happens online can end up online forever. A bad reputation can slam future doors shut before your child even manages to get a foot on the doorstep. Online reputation management begins off line.
