It is essential for kids to know what the rules are. However, many parents aren’t even sure exactly what the rules are in the house. Establishing a set of internet rules helps kids understand the importance of having boundaries and limits. Kids look for adults to learn about appropriate and acceptable behaviors and having a written internet use contract helps make this clear to children.
The CMD Group has put a Family Internet Use Contract together to help you define some of these rules. Making your children aware of the rules helps to protect them in many situations you would not otherwise discuss.
Just remember… Rules are not good unless they have a consequence. You have total control over what this should be, just remember… Your child’s life could depend on it.
