The online world is amazing for adults and children alike. Children can play, learn, connect and create. This opens up an entire world of information that is very accessible. However, the internet has a dark side. These are 7 simple and easy tips to keep your children safe online.

#1 Ensure passwords are strong and can't be easily guessed

#7 Talk to them

If you notice that they are not demonstrating safe online behavior, discuss your concerns with them. Don't yell or threaten to take away their social media. Just ask them why their behavior might be unsafe. Talk with them about the consequences of posting too much information. Problem solve with them ways that they can share information with friends without putting themselves at risk.
