Given the advancement of networks and cybernetic spaces, we propose to parents and guardians some tips to manage the exposure of children in networks:
Continuous dialogue: explain to the children what kind of photos they can post on networks and that they should not be sent to strangers. Emphasize that the web is not private and what they see is seen by many more people. Chat (even for a moment) about the use of the web and what we can find there.
Respect the minimum age for use of social networks and when the established age is appropriate, take care to maximize the security of the information that is shared.
Rules for using mobile devices, making clear the websites that they should not enter and which they always access with care and supervision.
