Growing Up Online & The Lorax Giveaway

Esmé has truly grown up in the “google” age.  She’s used to me following up every “I don’t know” with a “Let’s look up the answer online.” 

So when she asks a question like, “When is Jesus coming?” and I say no one knows for sure, she is quick to respond that surely we can find out the answer on the computer!

We’ve recently reached a new era where she is reading with ease and looking up her own answers online.  I have to be careful what I write on this blog now, because it’s easy to overstep the boundaries of what SHE wants to share.  I have to be careful who I friend on Facebook, because she reads my Facebook feeds.  And I can’t just set her up on a “safe” site and walk away, because I have no idea where her clicks will land her.

 

How did YOU teach your children to surf the web safely?

The More You Know Learning Series, in collaboration with NBC News, has launched Growing Up Online, the FREE eBook for parents to keep their kids safe on the Internet!

Our kids have never known a world without the Internet. They’re spending more and more time on the web, so teaching them about using technology responsibly and safely is critical. Use the #GrowingUpOnline Blog App and take the quiz to see if your child is ready to safely surf the web!

Download the FREE Growing Up Online eBook and be sure to watch all four entertaining comic book stories as a family, which show real situations that may occur when your kids go online.

This free eBook provides easy-to-use information that addresses the growing concern about kids’ online privacy and cyberbullying in a unique and engaging way. Growing Up Online is packed with important tips that every parent should know!

 

How do you keep your kids safe online?

Growing Up Online, as part of their promotion, is giving a Dr. Seuss’ THE LORAX DVD and Blu-ray Combo Pack to one lucky reader.  US/Canada only; no PO boxes please.  Thanks to Growing Up Online for the prize and the promotional materials included in this post.

We subscribe to Truvine.net'S monthly filtering system. It has truly worked wonderfully for our family! It's very worth the amount of money we pay each month for safe internet. It's a simple, small company, not fancy, but it works well.
