Consumer Protection Series: Internet Safety for Children
February 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
Many children have access to the internet at home, school, or even a friend’s house, and they are often online for hours every day. Make sure you’re aware of your child’s online activities to help keep them safe. This session will discuss how to keep your kids safe while they are gaming, downloading apps, sharing photos, and clicking on links. We will also discuss laws that give parents control over what information a business can collect on a child and how that information can be used.
