Even if you aren’t traveling this summer, you can use your staycation to make an impact. June is Online Safety Month, and with youth being out of school, at home, and online more often, we urge you to become aware of the very real dangers facing kids and teens online as well as how you can address the topic of online safety as a parent or caregiver. Take some time to explore a few of these resources this summer, either on your own or as a family, to better protect and empower the youth in your life to stay safe as they use online spaces.

We encourage you to be vigilant this summer, whether you are traveling or at home, and create opportunities for discussion of these topics with your families, kids, and teens. There is much being accomplished in these spaces, and much more to be done. But you can help. Get educated, keep your eyes open, and be ready to take action when you see someone in need.
