Internet Safety Tips for Parents

I present these Internet Safety Tips for Parents because at, we take our Child Privacy Protection very seriously.

The Internet has a tremendous attraction for kids and teens. It's truly a rich resource for information and entertainment — the good sort. Unfortunately, there is an evil side to almost everything that's good, so it always pays to be careful.

Although this website is not directed to children under the age of 16, it's unavoidable that some will visit it. After all, the Kingdom of God is open to children of all ages.

We read in Scripture, "Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity" (1 Timothy 4:12).

Regardless, we do not knowingly collect or use personally identifiable information from anyone under 16 years of age. Anyone under the age of 16 must provide parental consent to use this site in compliance with the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), and Article 8 of the GDPR.

As parents, you should always be aware of the privacy policies of websites that your children visit so you can be assured that they will be afforded a safe visit.

I strongly encourage all parents to go online with their kids and teens. The following Internet Safety Tips For Parents will help to make your family's online experience safer and more pleasant:

  • Teach your children never to give personal information online, unless supervised by a parent or responsible adult. Personal information includes the child's photo, name, age, gender, home address, phone number, school, sports clubs, family information, friend's names, and so on.
  • Know the websites your kids are visiting and which sites are appropriate. If the site doesn't meet with your approval, do not be afraid to say "NO" to your children. They may not like it, but they will be safe!
  • Do NOT permit kids or teens to access the Internet behind locked doors. Always monitor their online activities. You might trust them, but you CANNOT trust the unscrupulous people and marketers they encounter online who will use cunning methods to deceive them.
  • Always look for a website's Privacy Policy and read it carefully. Know how your children's information is treated.

Also, be sure to check out the Internet Safety Tips for Parents on the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) website. The practical tips address emerging online safety issues and will enable parents and teens to become Web savvy.

The RCMP site is one of the best online resources to help street proof the entire family for the Internet, so be sure to check it out.

Read's Privacy Policy. It will give you an idea of the type of privacy policy that you need to see on other websites to ensure your family's online safety.
