Why The Super Smart Cyber Guide for Kids is important for today's children…

Today's children are online at a young age, for many more hours, and in more ways than ever before. They are using the Internet for education, connections, playtime and more. Without coaching, they can expose themselves (and also sometimes their family's devices) to risks.

For parents and educators, explaining cybersecurity to children can be a daunting task; yet doing so is an important part of their safety education.

Habits learned at a young age are most likely to "stick," so teaching skills and mental reflexes around online safety are best to introduce when children begin using devices. The good news is that smart online habits can be taught and can increase safety. Kids can learn skills to protect private information, voice discomfort, ask questions, and think analytically.

In addition, today's kids are tomorrow's problem-solvers, inventors, and cyber experts. Children who are raised to be smart and confident online will become more comfortable with technology–opening up opportunities for their futures.
