"The internet has become an integral part of life. It is a powerful resource, enabling people of all ages to learn and communicate in a myriad of new ways. For children, growing up in a world where the internet has always been available, it is an essential tool." - The Australian Communication & Media Authority
Because children are using the internet extensively both at home and at school, parents are encouraged to read the Cyber Smart Guide for Familes. It will provide practical advice and information on safe internet useage at home and in public spaces, such as libraries or internet cafes. Parents can help to keep their children cyber safe, and ensure that the whole family enjoys positive internet experiences. This Guide will assist parents to achieve this goal.
