Children’s Online Safety Pledge

What was relevant then still applies today. “The online pledge.” I came across something I had written quite a few year ago when children started to spend an increasing amount of time on the Internet. It talked about  a growing concern about children’s safety on the Internet. The ability for undesirable material to filter through our email and internet poising an ever increasing problem. The importance of getting children on-board right from when they begin using the Internet.

The pledge  seems just as important and relevant now as it was then. However, now it applies not only to the internet itself but how it is accessed form the many different types of digital devices available to kids or for that matter the phone and other implications form text messaging etc.

The type of message I was giving my children over 20 years ago still applies today but has a wider context.
