New Campaign Aims to Keep Young 4-Hers Safe While Online

The Canadian Centre for Child Protection’s new online safety initiative, which runs until late fall, focuses on parents and caregivers of tweens aged eight to 12 who use live-stream apps, gaming platforms and live chat features.  It includes television, print, digital and social media tools, with additional information and resources available at protectkidsonline.ca, a website which provides online safety tips for parents, along with age-appropriate points to talk about with tweens and teens.  New online safety lessons aimed at children in grades 3 to 8, which are also available to families for free, can be accessed at protectchildren.ca/order.
