Do-it-yourself house rules for online privacy

https://www.priv.gc.ca/en/about-the-opc/what-we-do/awareness-campaigns-and-events/privacy-education-for-kids/tips-for-parents/ 

The best tool for online privacy success is a great plan that your family can discuss and use together. By talking about the ways you interact online and the potential impact these activities could have on your privacy, you can build a plan that keeps everyone safe and sound.

Privacy is about preserving your ability to control your own personal information so that it doesn't wind up being used in ways you hadn't expected - possibly with negative consequences.

With this tool, parents can take the time to learn how their children spend time online and then discuss ways to protect privacy while communicating, exploring and learning.

This tool is designed for children and preteens, but could also be used as a starting point for a discussion with older teens about online privacy.
