Is your kid safe online?A generation ago, the idea of cyber safety didn't even exist. Now, it's more important than ever. Joining Away We Grow host Diane Mizota is Pattie Fitzgerald, founder of Safely Ever After, to talk about how to keep kids safe online.
Kids are starting to use computers and phones early on these days, and parents may wonder what sites are appropriate for what age. Fitzgerald notes that most social media sites have age guidelines in place. "Do your research, find the age-appropriate games and websites, and use the most private settings," she says.

• Friend your children.
• Know your children's passwords.
• Set up the rules ahead of time.
• Do not let your children accept friends unless they know the other person in the real world.
• Do not allow chat rooms, especially when kids are young.
