Internet Safety Training for Parents

Surveys of parents at our site show that they would like to participate in Internet safety classes. Before the teachers and I begin developing lessons of our own, is there an existing curriculum we could use or adapt?

It's great that you and your staff are preparing to provide this important educational opportunity for the parents, and you don't have to reinvent the wheel. Begin by visiting i-SAFE, where you'll find an entire program for parents, including learning modules and other good information. In addition, safety sites such as SafeKids or NetSmartz Workshop offer supplemental information for parents that might be appropriate for you to incorporate into your parent education program.
