The new school year is always a good time to talk to your kids and teens about boundaries and how to keep themselves safe. In fact, Vernal City Assistant Police Chief Keith Campbell recommends that parents adopt a hands on approach when it comes to keeping their kids safe online. “Now that school is back in full swing,” shares Campbell, “parents should be aware of their children’s use of social media including passwords and supervised responsible internet use.” Campbell says the police are constantly dealing with cases of sexual exploitation and that parents always need to be aware of what their kids are doing online. A great resource on this topic is www.netsafeutah.org. There are age appropriate videos about internet safety for kindergarten aged kids clear through high school and parent resources.
