Kids today are growing up online. Studies show that almost every school child has been online and three-quarters of young people can access the Internet from their homes, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Kids go online to research and complete school assignments and to learn about topics that interest them. They also go online to chat with friends, play games, download music, keep a journal or Web blog, create websites, shop, and more.

It may seem like kids are pretty savvy Web users and many parents think that their children are better computer users than they are. But, that does not mean kids understand the dangers they could encounter on the Internet or how to avoid them. The good news is that parents can help.

Below are resources designed to keep your child safe.
