Welcome to CyberSmartNV
Parents

As a parent you don’t always have the answer to every situation that occurs with your children. This becomes more apparent when those situations involve the ever expanding digital world. Keeping your children safe on the internet is a challenge – especially when your children may know more than you about technology!

That is where CyberSmartNV can add to your bucket of answers! The cyber resources and links for parents cover topics from Cyberbullying to summer cyber programs, cyber education to keep the entire family safer, how to be a good cyber citizen, to what you can do to report a cybercrime.
