Teach Kids Internet Safety

Teach Kids Internet Safety. Keeping Kids Safe; it’s a parent’s biggest responsibility.

Teach Kids internet Safety. 

Here is excellent advice from Safe Florida onTeach Kids Internet Safety how to keep your kids safe on the internet. Safe Florida is from the office of Florida’s State Attorney General. According to the website, 77 million children use the internet, and of the children aged 10-17, 1 in 7 will be sexually solicited online. Scary, right. (graphic courtesy of ClassroomClipart).

Teach Kids internet Safety

Have that conversation with these important safety tips:

  • Never give out identifying or personal information – home address, school name, telephone number, age, marital status, or financial information in chat rooms or bulletin boards; 
  • Don’t post photographs of your children on Web sites that are available to the public; I see these all the time on Facebook.
  •  Inquire about your Internet Service Provider’s (ISP’s) privacy policies and exercise your options for how your personal information may be used.
  • If you have cause for concern about your children’s online activities, talk to them. Remember – how you respond will determine whether your children confide in you the next time they encounter a problem;
  • Never allow your children to arrange a face-to-face meeting with someone they’ve “met” online unless they’ve received your permission;
  • If you become aware of the transmission, use, or viewing of child pornography while online, immediately report this to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s CyberTiplineâ at 1-800-843-5678 or www.cybertipline.com;
  •  Instruct your children not to click on any links in email from persons they don’t know. Such links could lead to inappropriate Web sites;
  •  Remember that people online may not be whom they seem to be. Someone indicating that “she” is a “12-year old girl” could be a 40-year old male predator;
  • Be careful about offers that involve personally coming to a meeting, having someone visit your house, or sending money or credit card information;
  • Keep the computer in a family room instead of the child’s bedroom;
  • Share an email account with your children to oversee their mail, and consider joining your children when they are in private chat areas;
  • Utilize the filtering features built into the popular Internet browsers, and software programs that block areas known to be inappropriate for children. 
  • Know the lingo used by teenagers in chat rooms and email correspondence.
Teach Kids Internet Safety For Your Peace of Mind

Teach Kids Internet Safety. Nothing is more devastating than having a child hurt or assaulted, please take these tips seriously and implement them at home. Better to be safe than sorry.

Read about Lightning Safety in Florida.

Come to Trinity Yappy Hour. We run it and raise money for local pet Rescue organizations. It’s held at Fiddlers Green on the second Wednesday of the month. Bring your dog, come with friends; we have a great time and raise $400-500 for the featured rescue.

10 Tips For Great Home Photos

10 Tips For Great Home Photos

Alright, Alright, Alright! You have decided to sell your home. You have chosen an experienced agent such as myself, who has sold in your area for years, and who uses the latest technological tools to get your home sold. The papers are signed: what’s next?

10 Tips For Great Home Photos

Photos, of course. The photographer (whether it’s the agent or someone hired by the agent) needs some help from you to get the very best photographs that will sell your home. What should you do to make sure that happens?

10 Tips For Great Home Photos

Tips to help your photographer catch your home at it’s best. 

  • Make sure the home is full of light, natural if you have it, artificial if you don’t. The photographer will use discretion to turn off any lights that interfere with the photograph.
  • If you’re walls are overfull with photos, pictures, awards take some of them down. They tend to make the home look over-stuffed and detract from the spacious look we are trying for.
  • Go after those cluttered counters and shove everything in a cupboard or cabinet.  Make sure the counter tops are pristine and pretty.
  • Pick up all articles of clothing off the floors, beds, etc. You may think your laundry is attractive but it doesn’t look good in print.
  • Put your bedspreads or comforters on the beds; make sure they are straight. I can’t tell you how many beds I have had to make or remake over my real estate career.
  • Move your kitchen trash can to a spot where it can’t be seen. I have taken photos and noticed a trash can or two afterwards (I always check my photos before leaving).
  • You should hide the litter box if Kitty has one, and pick up the dog’s toys.
  • Speaking of pets, we know you love them dearly but it’s best not to have them cavorting through the photos.  Believe it or not, some people don’t like dogs or cats, and seeing one or several may turn them off before they even get a chance to see your home.
  • Please don’t cook a meal while pictures are being taken. (Don’t ask).
  • Last, all humans should stay out of the photographer’s way and not try to be too helpful.

What does this do?

These 10 Tips For Great Home Photos will assure great ones.  Another tip: Ask to see some samples of the agent’s photography before you sign the papers.

In conclusion, photos are one of the most important tools for selling your home, make sure the photographer does a good job.

The antique camera is my husband’s. It belonged to his Dad.
