In this week's KNWA and Your Family, summer safety isn't just a concern outdoors, in the yard, or at the pool.A new report shows most parents aren't doing enough to keep up with what their kids are doing inside the home, online.
The study by internet security firm McAfee found a growing divide between parents and children when it comes to communication about safe online practices. 72% of the adults surveyed admitted they don't have enough time or energy to keep up with their children's activities on the internet.
The advice from online safety experts like Michelle Dennedy is for parents to engage their kids, right now. "They're letting their kids do whatever they want, " says Dennedy. "And they're just assuming that there's no trouble and there's no danger and there's no risks."
Dennedy also says it's always best to remind your children that the footprints they leave on the internet will follow them well into adulthood, even costing them a future job if they're not mindful of their online posting.
