Kids use the internet for all kinds of things. Games, homework, social media, hobbies, chatting with friends, the list is endless and constantly changing. As parents it can be quite a challenge to keep up and even more of a challenge to make sure that our kids use the internet safely.
Restrictions and limiting might appear to be a solution but in reality, they do not help children understand what the dos and don’ts are. Communication and involvement work much better. Knowing what your kids do and letting them know that you care can however be a challenge when their preferences change proverbially faster than the weather does.
That is why we developed Internet Safety for Kids. 20 child-friendly cartoon videos of 5 minutes which parents and children can watch together to help them understand the importance of cybersecurity in our connected world. Each video will address an important topic and each video will give kids and parents plenty to talk about.
Internet Safety for Kids is developed in collaboration with children, parents, and teachers. Our goal is to create a platform by which children and parents, and of course teachers can make cybersecurity and internet safety an understandable topic they speak openly and regularly about.
Cybersecurity is an important part of our lives in our connected society, and that includes making sure that our kids understand it.
