Exploring the Internet together

Copyright: Ute Grabowsky/photothek.net

Especially if your son or daughter is already on the Internet on his or her own from time to time, it is important that you as parents are always available to answer questions and solve problems. If possible, you should surf together with your child as often as possible. This will give you a feel for how competently and safely your daughter or son is navigating the web. Over time, your child should also be given the opportunity now and then to discover a topic for himself on selected pages alone and to make his first experiences without parents. If there is an open, relaxed approach to the Internet right from the start, this will be transferred to your child, who will thus be able to encounter challenges without bias and at the same time develop a healthy skepticism.
