Online Safety Guide for Parents

Cyber space is a play ground for children today. It's not a matter of choice, but the reality of times. As a parent one needs to be a guide in this arena like many others of tour child's life. Though It can be difficult as many of us are migrants to the digital world and honestly to not understand the technology.

Well though that might be a good narrative for most situations, when it comes to your child we would humbly suggest you spend that extra few minutes every day reading up on #OnlineSafety. And the best part is, its not so different from any other aspect of your parenting life, like a playground, or television, or learning to use the spoon.

We have gathered a few resources from across the web, and developed a few of our own to help you out in this space. The key of course remains to 'Have a conversation'. The amazing and wonderful part about the world today is that we have Google, anything you don’t understand, just Google it, specially incase of technology, you are bound to find an answer, plus online communities on Facebook, can also be a good guide as parents share their tips and tricks.
