New ‘contract’ gives parents and children an opportunity to discuss using the Internet responsibly.

Fort Lauderdale, FL –McGruff SafeGuard® recently launched an Internet Safety Pledge and Contract that helps parents keep children and teens safe online.  This is especially important during summer when kids have more free and unsupervised time to go online on mobile devices.

The Internet Safety Pledge – one for kids and one for teenagers – gives parents an opportunity to discuss their expectations for their kids’ behavior online with them.  This includes which content is appropriate to view, dangerous activities, peer pressure and more.  The contract, replete with places for parents and kids/teens to sign, formally documents expectations for online behavior between parent and child.  It reminds kids of their personal responsibility for their online behavior and safety, and reinforces parents’ rules.

Parents can’t be everywhere all the time. Review the Internet Safety Tips below, then print out the kid or teen McGruff SafeGuard Internet Safety Pledge and Contract at www.GoMcGruff.com/pledge and have your children sign it. Read the rest of this entry »
