If your kids are awake, they’re probably online according to a 2009 study from the Kaiser Family Foundation. The average young American now spends practically every waking minute — except for the time in school — using a smart phone, computer, television or other electronic device.
Those ages 8 to 18 spend more than seven and a half hours a day with such devices, compared with less than six and a half hours five years ago, when the study was last conducted.
The resources page offers links for students and parents to spend this time safely.
This link will take you to an informative article for parents that provides a general overview of internet safety, as well as practical suggestions for keeping your children safe. The article is also available in Spanish.
