At what age should my kids go online?
The age kids begin exploring the digital, online world begins at home. Lots of kids start playing around online during the preschool years, but many parents wait until kids are in elementary school to get them started. Whatever you choose, these guidelines will give you and your kid a good beginning:
- Sit with little kids -- at least at first -- so you can explain what they see.
- Find age-appropriate sites with high learning potential.
- Put a time limit on your sessions (instill the idea of balance early).
- Avoid just-before-bed computer time. It can be stimulating and interrupt sleep.
