NetFamilyNews: Provides a review of the latest news on technologies that affect the lives of families and children, including reviews of parent guides to Facebook and Google Plus, information on privacy and safety laws and issues, and school and library policy concerns.

The editor of NetFamilyNews is Anne Collier, a writer and journalist with expertise in Internet safety who is also executive director of the Tech Parenting Group.

ConnectSafely.org: Much of the content on this site is drawn from Net Family News but is organized topically in a user-friendly way. There’s also an active and unmonitored parent forum, which means the discussion and advice range from helpful to questionable.

GetNetWise: Contains a large repository of video tutorials that help parents to set privacy and search settings on the computers their children use. Provides online safety guides and an excellent explanation of the kinds of risks children are likely to encounter online at different ages.

Media Awareness Network: Based in Canada, this site offers resources on digital literacy for parents and educators. Their e-parenting tutorial includes the topics “online research and homework,” “online relationships,” “inappropriate content,” “online marketing,” and “too much time online.” They are supported by telecommunications companies in Canada and in the United States and are endorsed by numerous educational organizations.

NetSmartz: A commercially supported site that is part of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, this site offers up-to-date Internet safety presentations given by law enforcement officials. The site includes real-life stories and resources that let young people learn to identify dangers online.
