Summer is in full swing in August- and children are out of school and may have a lot more free time on their hands. So, Internet safety is the Geeks On Site topic this month.
Geeks on Site, not only cares about assisting Geeks On Site customers with day to day problems they have with their home PC or Mac, but issues concerning their children's safety on the Internet too.
Geeks on Site employees are not just dedicated remote technicians and administrative staff, many are parents as well. Geeks On Site understands the possible dangers of Internet access and unsupervised kids. Geeks On SIte recommends not only caring for your actual PC or Mac with any one of the great service plans Geeks On Site offers, but also regularly monitor what your children are viewing on the Internet, and what websites and chat rooms they have access to as well.
1. Create ground rules for your kids- what they can and cannot do on the Internet.
2. Research software, such as NetNanny, to help control your children's Internet activities.
3. Immediately report any inappropriate or threatening communication your child receives to your local law enforcement agency.
4. Keep communication lines open with your children- educate your kids on inappropriate issues regarding the Internet and let them know how important it is to tell you right away if they think there is a problem.
