The following tweet from this morning got me thinking about online safety for kids:

The first questions I had included:
  • Do you use any parental monitoring tools on your computer?
  • Do you sit and watch 100% of online activity?
  • Do you automatically have a copy of all incoming email forwarded to your account?
A few minutes later I started to wonder how well they can type and if they're mostly using Gmail or other services such as YouTube.

I also commented that I have a younger child and he is limited to ABC Mouse and the kids version of Netflix.
