A Parent's Prayer from Loyola Press

Practices and Guidelines for use of Social Networking, part of Archdiocese of Milwaukee Safeguarding All God's Family program.

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) (updated link from above Archdiocesan Guidelines) gives parents control over what information websites can collect from their kids.  The COPPA Rule — with newer provisions in effect on July 1, 2013 — puts additional protections in place and streamlines other procedures that companies covered by the rule need to follow.  (If someone runs a website designed for kids or a website geared to a general audience but collects information from someone they know is under 13, they must comply with COPPA’s requirements.)

Parenting Apps Mobile phones, tablets and computers can all be configured with parental controls.  Whether your goal is to block certain content, set time parameters or just be mindful of usage, a variety of apps and programs are available.  From screenagersmovie.com
