According to the National Crime Prevention Council, 74% of 8 to 18 year olds have access to the internet at home. Not only do more children have access to the Internet than ever before, but they are using it more, too. Many schools incorporate the Internet into their curricula and encourage online research for projects. But that’s not all kids are doing online. They also email, chat with friends through instant messenger and in chat rooms, play games, create websites and web blogs, and just surf the ‘net.
Even as kids grow savvier in their use of the Internet, it can still be a dangerous place. The good news is that most dangers can be avoided if children and their parents learn about smart Internet use.
Please join Grady Elementary PTA as we welcome Hillsborough County Sheriff's Deputy and School Resource Officer, Charity Arthur, to speak with us about internet safety. Deputy Arthur will talk about different types of internet dangers and will provide helpful solutions and practices that parents can implement to help their children stay safe online. The program will last about one hour and then there will be time for questions afterward.
