“The Internet offers kids many opportunities for learning, constructive entertainment, and personal growth. At the same time, parents are concerned about the risks kids face online. The challenge for parents is to educate themselves and their children about how to use the Internet safely.” GetNetWise can help with the education and meeting these safety challenges. The sections include an ‘Online Safety Guide’ addressing risks by age level, ‘Tools for Families’ explaining filters and monitoring products, and ‘Web Sites for Kids’ suggesting sites that are educational, entertaining as well as safe. The section on ‘Reporting Trouble’ is available to help in educating adults on recognizing some of the safety issues and has guides to law-enforcement agencies for formal reporting. This site is an example of a public service provided by companies and organizations intent on making the Internet a safe place for everyone. GetNetWise is definitely worthy of a bookmark!
