Today is Safer Internet Day (SID), an annual global event that promotes safe, responsible and positive behaviour in the digital world. This year's theme 'Together for a better internet’ encourages individuals to create a better internet by developing four, critical skills: Respect, Responsibility, Reasoning and Resilience.
@Kara_YC is currently working on a blog post about protecting children in the digital world and we’d love to include your tips and tricks.
Parents of Yes Crowd: what are your strategies for protecting your kids online? Do you use any parental control apps? Tell us in the comments below.
Filters - they dont really work - sure they get most - but websites still slip through.
Filters can even block legitimate sites used for work/school purposes (have seen it myself at Work blocking a fed gov dept website)
Having the device in an open area as part of the house rules may help with the issue - its not really peer pressure, but more of a 1984 vibe of your being watched...ahhh yeah could go a bit far with that side.
Education of the young and old - in regards to online predators and "love" scams is key.
