Internet Safety

The Internet is an amazing communications tool that can open a world of possibilities for children and youth.  Unfortunately, the online world can also be dangerous place for vulnerable children and youth who are unaware of the dangers that may lurk beneath the surface.

As a parent or caregiver, you can play a vital role in protecting your child by ensuring that they understand how to use the Internet safely.  The Canadian Centre for Child Protection has developed an excellent website, The Door That’s Not Locked, to help parents and caregivers, teachers, children and youth navigate the online world safely and securely.  

It contains a variety of resources and tools that will help you keep your child safer while they're exploring and enjoying the online world. From learning what online activities are popular and how your child uses them, to discovering ways to talk to your child about healthy versus unhealthy relationships, this website will give you the important information you need.
