Norton Family Resource Center

What is the Norton Family Resource Center?

The internationally acclaimed computer security company Norton has put together a technology safety site for parents, kids, and teachers.


Features of This Site

Ask Marian/Blog/Columns

Marian Merritt is an Internet safety expert who has written dozens of articles, blog posts, and columns about keeping families safe online. You can read all of these as well as past questions and answers submitted by other Web users. All of this content can be accessed from the Ask Marian, Blog, and Column tabs. And, if you have questions that aren't covered on the site, you can email them to Marian and get the help you need.

Article Library

Norton has articles on everything from phishing to worms. One really nice thing about the page is that many of the articles are organized by age groups, since the advice that applies to tweens isn't always the same as advice for older teens.

Video Tips

Here are a bunch of videos about Internet safety. All are hosted directly on the site, so you don't have to wade through any of the potentially inappropriate side-junk that sometimes comes up on other video sharing sites.

Online Family

Online Family is a program that allows you to see what your kids are doing online, how much time they're spending online, what they're searching for, and more. Best of all, the service is 100 percent free!
