The Door That's Not Locked
The web is a wonderful place, if you understand the dangers. While the Internet is like an open door to a world of great information, communication and entertainment, it can also be a direct passageway to danger.

Smartphone Safety
In a relatively short time, cell phones have evolved from a traditional phone to something that now resembles all the features provided on your personal computer, video and music system. As advancements continue with mobile technology, it is important that parents view these devices in the same way as personal computers in the home. For their own protection, children need to be guided on both the advantages and risks of new technology.
