Today we take a detour from our mainstay of diet, lifestyle and such. The Internet is the most fascinating entity in my lifetime. It has and will continue to rapidly change what and how we learn, how we do business, our recreation patterns and so much more! Some of us don't remember the typewriter but it was invented soon after my birth and has become obsolete. They actually used to have typewriter repairmen that would come to the house to fix yours if it wasn't working well.
Like anything else in life powerful things can be used for good or evil. And, the Internet is truly powerful! So we must not only learn to use this wonderfully powerful tool but we must learn how not to get hurt while using it. We must especially take care with how our children and young adults use this powerful tool!
I recently found a great website and took their FREE course on Internet safety. It was quick, interesting and very informative. Again it was also FREE! I believe that every serious Internet user and every parent should take the time to listen to and watch the FREE material on this website and then get others to do the same. No, this is not a marketing tool or system. In fact, no one gets paid for going there or referring someone else. It is a site dedicated to providing cutting edge statistics and information about what's happening on the Internet and how to be safe while online.
i-SAFE Inc. is the worldwide leader in Internet safety education. Founded in 1998 and endorsed by the U.S. Congress, i-SAFE is a non-profit foundation dedicated to protecting the online experiences of youth everywhere. i-SAFE incorporates classroom curriculum with dynamic community outreach to empower students, teachers, parents, law enforcement, and concerned adults to make the Internet a safer place. Please join us today in the fight to safeguard our children’s online experience.
OK, the site already!!! It's i-SAFE Inc. located at http://www.isafe.org/. We must make the Internet safer for everyone, especially the children! Some of the videos will absolutely be a wake up call to you as they were to me. Witty inventions are given by the Lord and it's up to us how and what they're used for! Go to the site, bookmark it and make a difference in your family and your community!
