How to Talk to Kids

There will come a time in every parent's life when kids start to bring up some of the more difficult issues: bullies, Internet safety, dating, peer pressure, drugs and alcohol, or sex, to name a few. There are many online resources to help prepare you to discuss these issues with your child. You can also find plenty of sites for kids and teens to help answer the questions they don't want to ask you or that you can't answer.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Consider the source when looking at information about drug use or sex; some sites will be more open about these issues than you may be comfortable with. Look for an "about us" section of a site or look for the parent company by searching the URL on the WhoIs database to determine if the opinions of an organization are in line with your own.
  • For resources to help you promote safe Internet behavior with your children or to filter the content available to your child online, see the "What can I do to keep my kids safe online?" section of our findingDulcinea Internet Safety Web Guide.
