Over 55% of children ages 10 to 12 have been exposed to violent content on the internet.1
At the Junior League of Topeka, our community focus area is child welfare as impacted by community instability and violence. One core area that we can all provide for child welfare is by helping prepare children in our community to interact safely online.
That’s why the Junior League of Topeka has created a parental guide to Internet Safety. In this guide, parents, educators, and community members will learn:
- The Biggest Online Risk Factors
- Steps you can take to protect your children online
- Learn ways to protect your family from online scams.
- How to identify red flags that may indicate your child is in trouble!
