Common Sense Media: 6 Fresh Ways to Clean Up Your Kids' Media

The Internet

Old think: The risks that kids face -- finding inappropriate content, talking to strangers, getting cyberbullied -- make you nervous every time your kid goes online.

New think: The Internet can be a vast resource for learning and fostering community -- if you know where to look and follow basic safety rules.

Our take: Keep an open mind. While there is a lot of inappropriate stuff on the Internet, it's also a vibrant resource that kids can learn to navigate safely and productively. The possibilities for discovery -- like Skyping with relatives, researching subjects that interest you, uploading digital creations, and interacting with friends -- can be educational and enriching. —Common Sense Media (Photo: iStock)
