Online Safety: Resources for Parents

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia understands that the Internet has become a part of everyday life for many children and teens. And while it can be a great source of entertainment and learning, the risks to kids' privacy and personal safety are real. Being aware of the risks that exist and discussing them with your children openly and often are the best ways parents can help keep their family safe in a digital world.

Here we have listed a variety of safety information resources from reliable, trustworthy organizations, to help you educate both yourself and your kids about responsible online behavior. Most of the information is free, though some sites do ask you to register first. If there is a fee, we have noted it beneath the link.
