I got the opportunity to interview Brandon Watson, CEO of IMSafer and board member of the Family Online Safety Institute on online safety for children. He was kind enough to answer all of my questions from when is it appropriate to have a computer in your child’s room, how to respect your child’s privacy but keep them safe, & basic things that we should teach our children about being safe online. Don’t miss this article!
For parents of older children, I am curious if you have had this talk yet with your child? What did you teach them? Do you have parental blockers on your computer? Do you monitor their chatting or just trust that they are doing the right thing?
For those of us who love a freebie, IMSafer offers a free membership or you can take advantage of a premium membership for only $30 a year.
Many thanks to Brandon for giving us the opportunity to get answers to these important questions!
