Internet Safety

Its important for parents to discuss internet safety with their children. Most parents do not think setting simple rules will help but the difference is there. Children sometimes know when something is wrong but do they know its okay for them to tell you? Your child could be receiving messages or emails from people discussing topics your child didn't expect. Its not their fault and they should know that, and know its best to show you these kind of messages and let you the parent deal with it.
