The U.S. Department of Education, along with the Federal Trade Commission and Federal Communications Commission, is releasing a new guidebook for parents about online safety this week.
“Net Cetera: Chatting with Kids About Being Online,” is intended to help parents talk with their children about navigating the Internet safely. It includes information on using social networks, cyberbullying, and protecting computers from malicious software.
The guidebook is part of a project involving government agencies and technology companies to provide practical tips on Internet use. The Web site includes experts’ tips on a range of computer-related topics, games to test your tech smarts, and videos about online safety.
