parents and guardians to supervise your children’s online activity.

Greater Sudbury Police Service

SUDBURY, ONTARIO ~~~  April 9, 2020  (LSN) With children out of school, they are likely spending more time online. Predators know this. It’s vital for parents and guardians to supervise your children’s online activity.

Follow these tips:
* Communication is key. Talk to your children about online safety. Ensure that they know they can come to you if they see or hear something online that makes them feel uncomfortable.
* Avoid allowing your child have their phone, laptop or tablet in their bedroom. Keep your child in the same room as you when they are online. If you are working from home, provide your child with headphones so that the noise isn’t as distracting.
* Check your child’s devices, search history, text messages, online chats and what they are posting.
* Increase privacy and security settings.
* Monitor consistently.
* Let them know that it isn’t just “stranger danger”. Predators will make every attempt to befriend and groom your child. Talk about the realities of online danger with your child and let them know they can come to you without fear of having their devices taken away.

In the end, no amount of online filters or safety controls can replace parental supervision. Stay alert and pay attention. Don’t let your child become a victim of an online predator.
