Colorado Attorney General John Suthers has joined Democratic Rep. Nancy Todd, the Entertainment Software Association and Web Wise Kids to unveil an Internet safety program to help parents keep their children safe online.

Suthers said Monday that children are naive about dangers on the Internet and some parents are "clueless" about ways to protect them.

Sponsors say the program, called Wired With Wisdom, addresses the dangers associated with social networking, e-mail, cell phones, chat rooms, instant messaging and other technology so adults can educate young people about safe and responsible online practices.

Click on the link below to check out the new program. You will have to register, but it is free of charge. When asked for a password, use this one: wisdom.

    This sounds like something a parent should be doing to begin with, teaching your kids about the internet. That's what I did. The PC is in the living room and my son has never been able to log on to it unless we're in the room. Yes, I have to log on each time with the password he doesnt have but this has worked perfectly and we still do this even though he just turned 17. I'm an IT professional to begin with and know the dangers the internet can present at times to kids. I decided long ago, once he started on the PC that this was never going to be free to use anytime priviledge for him. This was the same for a cell phone as well, we finally allowed him to have a cell phone on his 17th birthday but with no texting. This is another function of technology, texting, that is creating a new breed of kids that don't know how to sit in the same room and speak together nor how to spell any word correctly or use correct grammar. The funny thing is, my son agrees as well.
