For young kids :
When your child begins to discover the world of Internet, it is necessary to help him to apprehend it, and to guide him/her by a set of rules and good reflexes simple to implement:
- Install a suitable parental control, and set it up carefully. It is advisable to place the computer in a common room in order to keep an eye on the activities of the child, Internet is also synonymous with danger.
- Teach your child how to navigate on the web : Give him the keys and the technical bases to go in search of the right information.
- Remind your children not to give personal information online. In particular to strangers. Moreover, it should not be forgotten that most traces left on the Web are public, visible to all, and sometimes indelible.
- Use a suitable browser: Rather than using the classics (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox ...) know that there are software specially dedicated to young children
For teenagers :
The advice is similar, but it is also necessary to take into account the risks related to social networks, that is setting privacy options on each network to avoid information or photo leakage which could be harmful in the context of an internship search for instance.
