Cy­ber-safety tips from moms

Good Housekeeping (Philippines) - - Real Life -

“I gave my kids, now aged 12 and 16, a crash course on so­cial me­dia. They know how to block peo­ple, set their ac­counts to pri­vate, make their ac­counts un­search­able, etc. In­stead of lim­it­ing them, I want to em­power them with the knowhow so they can set their own bound­aries.” —Rowena Wendy Lim Lei, 42, blog­ger, mom of two

“My son doesn’t post pictures of him­self—it’s a self-im­posed rule for him. I be­lieve it lessens the pos­si­bil­ity of peo­ple try­ing to hack into his ac­count. We also limit his in­ter­net hours.” —Lei Si­son, 41, on­line edi­tor, mom of one

“Hindi ko pa sila pina­paya­gan mag-so­cial me­dia. We al­ways tell them that there’s a le­gal age for it...and that there are so many things that can hap­pen on­line na hindi namin ma-ko-con­trol. They un­der­stand.” —Judy Ann San­tosag­oncillo, 39, ac­tress, mom of three
