You can help your child become a responsible, ethical digital citizen with healthy online relationships. To do that, you’ll use the same successful parenting skills that you’re already using at home. Resilient digital citizens recognize and seek out the 3Cs—appropriate contact, content, and conduct—in all digital settings (e.g., iPods,instant messaging, chat, computer games, game consoles, cell phones, text messaging, webcams)
To help you teach your children to safely and ethically use their digital devices,iKeepSafe has created the following programs:
Be informed and guide young people to use technology in a way that enhances our relationships and improves our health, wellbeing, and productivity.
