Tools and tricks for parents to protect kids online
- Leida Jones, Guest blogger
Here on the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) portal, we're always pleased to hear from different stakeholders on how they contribute to a better and safer internet for children and young people in their own areas of work and activities.
We were recently contacted Leida Jones, a freelance writer, regarding a resource she's developed. Titled "The Concerned Parent's Toolbox – 120 Tools and Tricks to Protect Your Kids", the guide offers a comprehensive list of online tools and techniques that all parents can use to keep their children safe whilst on the internet.
In addition to listing general tips, tricks and resources, the guide covers a range of issues such as cyberbullying, ad awareness, monitoring and filtering, file sharing and P2, privacy and identity protection, and internet addiction among others.
Access the guide online here.
