While my son is like Vanellope and has a "do all the things" type of view while being online, I tend to be Ralph-like and more "selective" with my internet usage. Why? Because while the internet of things is wonderful, if not used responsibly, it can quickly become an unsafe environment.
As a parent who's trying to manage how my son uses the internet, the news that Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Ralph Breaks the Internet is collaborating with Google’s Be Internet Awesome program to encourage the fundamentals of digital citizenship and online safety for kids is exciting.

Being a tween, he's starting to use the internet as a social tool, so these two printable will guide him to keep his info safe and know what to do when something online is "inappropriate"
