Creating a Family Media Agreement

Keep your family safe online with an internet contract.

In this increasingly digital society, children are bombarded with more ways to connect than ever before, from the computer at home to the cell phone in their pocket.

How do you keep your family safe online when children have access to the World Wide Web with just the swipe of a fingertip?

One good method is to create a Family Media Agreement -- a list of rules, terms and conditions, and boundaries that you set, and your child agrees to.

Review the privileges of the internet with children and make sure they know what to do if they come upon a situation online that makes them uncomfortable.

Children may not always come to their parents for help because they think they will over-react and take away their computers;  If a contract or a set of guidelines is set up and agreed upon ahead of time, both parents and children will feel more comfortable and will know what to do if something should occur.
