Requiring Online ‘Drivers License’ for Internet Use

August 14, 2009 at 11:44 am Leave a comment

Don’t be alarmed, there is currently no government program to require some sort of internet drivers’ license for anyone who wants to use the internet; however, the idea is interesting. Vannessa Van Petten plays with the thought in a blog post at Radical Parenting. The idea arises out of a debate of over preparing children for the intricacies and dangers of the internet. Providing a training and testing program (like the DMV) might help teach children ethical online behavior and ways to protect themselves against online predators, cyberbullying, and more.

Of course, parents can also provide this same training without some type of government program. Visit the article here, to see a list of suggestions for keeping your children safe online.
