Last Updated by WMHT Web Editor on
PBS LearningMedia/FRONTLINE

Are parents overreacting to the potential dangers of the Internet? Or should they limit how long teens can stay online? Is it okay for parents to keep tabs on their kids online by Googling them or checking their social media profiles?

With some extra free time, no doubt kids will spend more hours online this summer. Even though parenting the digital generation can be tough, there are things you can do to help your kids understand the benefits and drawbacks of digital technology. Watch this segment on "The Password Battle" from FRONTLINE’s Digital Nation and explore one parent’s attempts to balance keeping her kids safe online while empowering them as digital citizens.
