4 Online Safety Tips for Parents

"Number one, you won't find my children on the Internet," Rob says. "A lot of parents will put their kids as infants.

I would never put my children on the Internet."
If you want to share pictures with your family and friends on social networking sites such as Facebook, Rob says to make sure your security settings are set so that only your friends can view the images. " A lot of people leave it wide open for the whole world to see, and that's probably one of the biggest mistakes. Most social networking sites out there will have security features in place under the privacy setting."
