Ever found yourself needing help, but you weren’t sure where to turn? At The Tree House, we want to make sure our community has all the resources. Whether you are a nonprofit, school, or just a concerned family member or friend, we want you to have all the help you can get. Our mission is to prevent child abuse through education. This starts with educating parents as well as children on different risks and dangers that are in the world. This week I wanted to take time to focus on NetSmartzKids, and why they are an important resource.
NetSmartzKids is an online safety education program from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. They offer age-appropriate videos and activities that help teach children to be safer online. NetSmartzKids goal is to teach children to be more aware of potential online dangers. They help educate so that children can make better and safer choices both online and offline. NetSmartzKids is free and appropriate for all ages. You can visit NetSmartzKids at www.netsmartzkids.org for more information, games, activities, and videos.
I wanted to share this resource with you so that you can help your child or family member be as safe as possible when using the internet. Many people don’t know there are resources like this one available to them. In this day and age the internet is a huge part of our everyday lives. We need to make sure that our children know the risks when using the internet and know that there are steps they can take to ensure their safety when online. The internet can be a scary place, filled with many dangers. It is our responsibility as parents, caregivers, educators, and friends to do all that we can to keep our children safe and secure.
