Webwisekids.org Launches Online Safety Tutorial for Parents

ANITHA on January 12, 2010

Webwisekids.org launched an online tutorial called "Wired with Wisdom" to educate Colarado parents about potential online dangers, and gives them tools for discussing topics with their kids. This is a free program and the information can be found at their website.

Mike Saccone, Spokesperson of CO Attorney General John Suthers, says it's important for parents to discuss the topics with their children before they become an issue. The program was developed in conjunction with the trade group Entertainment Software Association and Web Wise kids, which have launched similar tutorials in California, New Mexico, Utah and Virginia.

"Parents will be able to go to the site and download a program that will step them through how to confront these various issues ranging from online predators to texting, and how to broach these topics with their kids," he says.
