Learn how to approach discussions on online behavior with your kids. Use the age-specific conversation starter guides to engage children on these topics.
While a majority of parents surveyed by Comcast believe that it's important to have "the Internet talk" with their kids, not all engage in active conversations with their children to discuss online security risk or appropriate online behavior. They need guidance on how to approach these topics. That's why Comcast is providing access to resources developed by The Mediatrician, Dr. Michael Rich, at the Center on Media and Child Health at Children's Hospital Boston. He has developed conversation starter guides to help parents approach these critical topics at the right level for their kids. Easy to use and based in research, these guides can help parents start - and continue - the new Talk.
From ages 2 to 4, children don't need Internet access - but if they are online, make sure they are always supervised.
Ages 8-12 bring social networking and lots of time online, so take this opportunity to build healthy media habits.
