I came across this fabulous idea from Focus on the Family website. It’s always a great idea to talk to your kids about internet safety – but why not make them review and sign an actual contract!?
Here is a simple link where you can download and print a contract for your kid to read and sign.
Here are some things that are covered on the contract:
- I will NEVER give anyone information about myself while I am online
- I will ALWAYS tell my parent if I find any uncomfortable stuff while I am on the internet.
- I will NEVER send pictures or videos of myself or other through the internet, email or texting.
- I promise to ALWAYS follow the rules my parent set for me.
I think this is a great tool, and makes it easy for you as the parent to sit down with your child and go over internet safety with them. Even if you’ve done it before, it’s always good to refresh this information with your child and make sure they remember the rules you have set forward.
