Helping our kids use their smartphones safely – Parent guide

MediaSmarts has partnered with TELUS to develop resources for two online portals designed to help keep Canadian families and kids safe online; the TELUS WISE online educational program and the TELUS WISE footprint website.

This guide for parents is from the TELUS WISE program. It helps parents understand the issues around smartphones before deciding if their child is old enough to have one. These include safety, data use, apps, security, privacy and cyberbullying.
