Be Involved

Parents need to know what apps kids use and the content they see. Engage with your children about their online experiences.

Use Parental Controls

Limit screen time and inappropriate content with device settings. Apple devices offer strong parental control options.

Set Clear Rules

Talk to your kids about safe social media use. Establish boundaries around screen time, content, and online behavior.
