  • With winter break approaching, children often increase the amount of time they spend using technology. But, the break also provides parents with the perfect opportunity to check in with their child about their online habits. IDEA has developed a helpful internet safety resource for families and parents. We encourage you to use this resource to have informative conversations with your child(ren) about internet safety and rules in your home. Link in bio.
