Programs and Policies
This chapter discusses the procedure for implementing effective programs and policies in regards to technological content. Safety has long been the primary concern of policymakers in terms of children on the internet, for good reason. Unfortunately, it is impossible to eliminate all of the risks associated with children going online, just like it is impossible to guarantee a child’s safety at the playground. It is vital that children and guardians continue to discuss appropriate conduct when online, setting clear, consistent rules. When children and adults are active participants in the creation of policy, their online experiences can be more meaningful.
