Wired Wednesday: Internet Safety Month

Did you that June is Internet Safety Month? Well it's perfect timing too! Being home for the Summer, kiddos have more access to computers and internet-capable devices throughout the day. This is the perfect time to teach the kiddos some internet safety. It's always good to refresh their minds on it too. Lil Man watched a Brain Pop Jr video about Internet Safety. It's great for a wide range of ages.

KidsHealth has a short but thought-provoking article. It makes you think about what can happen when your kiddo accidentally types "Legs" instead of "Lego". It also shares a little about safety laws.

Check out the FBI's Kids Safety Tips. It includes internet safety as well as some other ways to protect yourself.

NetSmartzKids is another good resource.

Check out KidzSearch for a kid-friendly search engine powered by Google. Keep those little eyes off unnecessary inappropriate search results. Plus, on the main page, there are quick links to fun, educational games.

Remember it's Internet Safety Month and it's important to teach our kiddos of the do's and don'ts of being on the internet.

Share your internet safety tips and resources with us!
