Family Internet Safety Site

Google & Common Sense Media have teamed up to launch a new site about family Internet safety. The new site has a great video for parents that includes useful "how to" tips about keeping kids safe while they are browsing the Internet. It shows parents how to check which pages and sites kids have been visiting, use filters and includes suggested rules for families.

The only suggestion I would like to add is that parents of preteens also go to the Palo Alto Medical Foundation preteen health site, We're Talking, Too: Preteen Health, and print and sign a copy of the Online Safety Pledge to keep posted near the computer.

Safe surfing everyone!
