Before your children start to explore the Internet, it's a good idea to make sure everyone understands what they should and shouldn't be doing online.
One idea is to sit down together and draw up a family code of conduct for all to agree on.
You can create a different contract for each child in your family with Internet usage rules set appropriately by age.
Everyone signs his or her contract to show that they understand the rules you've set, and they agree to follow them when they go online.
The following is a suggested family code-of-conduct contract that you can use for each of your kids.
Feel free to copy this contract, revise the rules as necessary for your family's needs, and print this contract for your personal use.
After the terms of your family Internet usage contract are agreed upon and signed, consider posting these contracts next to each computer in your house to remind everyone of the family Internet rules.
