LOS ANGELES Feb. 14, 2011 Liz Claiborne parental monitoring software
- Start by talking with your teen about dating habits and promote positive online relationships – discuss what makes a healthy relationship and encourage your child to surround him or herself with likeminded peers.
- Educate your teen on the permanence of information on the Internet and the ramifications of negative posts and photos that could follow a lifetime.
- Know the signs of dating violence for both the victim and abuser, which can include changes in mood, school work, sleeping habits and social life.
- Inform your child of the potential dangers of allowing other peers and individuals access to their devices. Set up passwords on all smartphones and laptops in case they land in the wrong hands.
- Notify teachers if you suspect your teen is in a violent relationship. Teachers are among the first to notice important changes in behavior, and it’s possible their partner may be another student.
- Stay in tune with your teen’s online and mobile phone activity. Consider implementing parental monitoring software on all home computers and teens’ smartphones to check for inappropriate activity.
