  • 10. Tips for dealing with excessive internet use
    Communicate Talk to their children about what they enjoy doing online and try to understand their interests.
    Set house rules Work out some boundaries for their children's access to the internet. It is better that children understand what parents expect rather than trying to work it out for themselves. Families can determine some consequences together if the rules are broken.
    Supervise Make sure they can adequately supervise what their children are doing online, particularly younger children. They can move the computer into a public area of the house to make it easier.
    Introduce other family activities Ensuring children are exposed to a range of other, non-internet-based activities is a good way to help them lead a balanced lifestyle.

  • 14. Digital Reputation
    As an internet user, you will have a digital or online reputation that is similar to your personal reputation.
    Digital reputations are developed over time and are based on the person or organisation’s ‘digital footprint’.
    If your child’s footprint contains things they might later regret sharing—risky photos or open blog posts—it can have quite serious ramifications for their digital reputation.

  • 16. Digital Footprint
    A passive digital footprint is created when data is collected about an action without the person who is the focus of the material knowing. At a low level this could be someone’s name and contact details. It may also include photos posted by other people, public postings which refer to the person without their consent and in some cases public records.
    An active digital footprint is created when personal data is released deliberately by a person who wishes to share information about themselves, such as intentional postings or sharing information in the public and semi-public areas on the internet.
    Dispel the myth –
    Many children and young people believe that that they are anonymous They should be aware of the many ways in which their personal information—and information about their online activities—can be collected without them knowing or consenting to this happening.
  • 17. How you can help?
    Protect their privacy on the internet by not sharing personal details when using social networking services or visiting websites. Read the privacy policies on websites they use.
    If they shop online or subscribe to services on a website, check that the site facilitates safe and secure transactions.
    Ask you to help them register for a service or set up an account, to ensure they are not providing personal identifying information.
    Use screen names or IDs that do not indicate gender, age, name or location.
    Remember that not everyone is who they say they are and not all information on the internet is true.
    Check their settings.
    Be aware that content they post may be online for a long time and cached
    You may also wish to consider using parental control software.
