Technology Safety
Below are some links to help protect children who use the internet, cell phones, social media or gaming sites. Note some wireless providers do offer plans for children that restrict usage and are adjustable as the child continues showing safe and responsible choices.

This page has further links. I found the best was Mobile Safety as it is broken down by age groups.

Social Networking, Cyber Bullying, Guide to Smartphones, and Protecting Kids Online. All from Netsmartz.org

This great site helps describe how you can protect your information and includes step by step instructions on setting privacy settings. Great resources!!
