Sue Scheff: National Cyber Safety Awareness Month



October is National Cyber Safety Awareness Month.



This is a great time to put together a list of great websites and resources to help you become an educated parent as well as helping your kids and teens to surf safely.



Over the past few months, I have written articles on Cyber Safety and how you can protect yourself and your family.



In August I released my recent book, Google Bomb! The Untold Story of the $11.3M Verdict Changed the Way We Use the Internet, which has received high praises and fantastic reviews.
Here is a small sample of some excellent articles, websites and services to help you be an educated parent. An educated parent leads to a safer child/teen online. Isn’t your child worth it? Take the time to learn more.

As an author and Parent Advocate, I always encourage parents to put aside time to know what your kids/teens are doing in cyberspace. Teach them about the importance of what they post today, may haunt them tomorrow.
