March Break Safety: Keep kids safe online with NEW multilingual information for parents!
Did you know that three quarters of Canadian school kids have a social media account or blog?*
Snapchat, Instagram and other social media are fun ways for kids to connect with their friends, but they also expose them to risks such as cyberbullying, strangers and explicit material.
As a parent or concerned adult, it can be hard to keep up with all the new social media apps. Our Parent Tip Sheet tells you what you need to know about Kik, Snapchat, Instagram and other platforms. Download this valuable information in English, French, Arabic, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese.
This March Break, why not help kids learn about web safety with our cootie catcher? Aimed at 8 to12 year-olds, the cootie catcher offers fun, engaging social media safety tips using bright colours, emojis and texting language.
Kids can play alone or with friends to spell a colour and pick a number to reveal their ‘fortune’. It’s perfect for handing out at home, schools, youth groups and community events.
You can download the cootie catcher in English and French on our website to print at home or in large batches at a print shop.
