A great on-line resource for parents can be found at Faith and Safety - Technology Safety Through the Eyes of Faith. Jointly developed by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America (GOA), this site is an attempt to give you some simple, straightforward advice and tools on how to navigate this digital world with your family.
We strongly encourage you to visit Faith and Safety because Internet safety isn't about the right software or service. Rather, real safety in the digital world is all about active, involved, loving parenting. It's a team effort that builds a strong Christian family!
