ECM Community

They’re All Our Kids

August 26th, 2013

By: Kerri Leland

As part of a community, it’s all of our responsibility to take ownership of the children around us. What does this mean? It means keeping kids safe...in every way. Whether they’re playing in our neighbourhood, riding the school bus, interacting with other kids at school, or spending time online, there are resources available that can help equip us to keep these young members of our community safe and thriving.

www.kidsafeprints.com Waterloo Ford Lincoln is now a Fingerprint Station Location. This system produces a lifetime safety record of a child and only the parent gets a record of the visit. Safety tips and education are also provided so parents can help arm their children with knowledge and start a family safety action plan. If there is ever an emergency, Operation Kidsafe and Waterloo Ford Lincoln will have parents better prepared to hand law enforcement vital information to act fast. Stop by and have your children finger-printed at Waterloo Ford Lincoln, located at 11420 - 107 Avenue. For more information, call 780-423-4330. 

www.parachutecanada.org/safekidscanada: Safe Kids Canada has joined with Safe Communities Canada, SMARTRISK, and ThinkFirst Canada to create Parachute, a national, charitable organization dedicated to preventing injury and saving lives. Parachute’s injury prevention programming and advocacy efforts are designed to help Canadians reduce their risks of injury while enjoying long lives lived to the fullest.

www.safekid.org: Due to the ever-increasing importance of children's health issues, Children's Health and Safety Association's mission is to continue the work that Children's Safety Association of Canada has accomplished for the past twenty years and provide up-to-date and vital health information for every concerned parent.

www.protectchildren.ca: The Canadian Centre for Child Protection is a charitable organization dedicated to the personal safety of all children. Our goal is to reduce child victimization by providing programs and services to Canadians. 

TELUS WISE: Offers best-in-class training for parents and anyone wanting to learn how to keep children and teens safe when using the Internet as well as a variety of tips and tools on Internet and Smartphone safety and security.   TELUS WISE content has been developed in partnership with MediaSmarts and other industry experts, addressing a critical need for timely, informative and relevant information, given the steady growth of smartphone adoption and Internet use, particularly with children and teens. As an organization, they’re always looking for ways to help families keep themselves safe from online criminal activity such as financial fraud and child predators; the very reason they developed this important educational program.  For more information, email wise@telus.com.

www.webcurfew.com: WebCurfew: Detects all Wi-Fi-enabled devices running in the home, including laptop computers, iPods and other MP3 players, smartphones, tablets, game consoles and IP TVs. With WebCurfew’s free service, parents have the ability to manually allow or disallow Internet access to any or all devices in the home by simply logging in and clicking a button on their personalized Control Panel Web interface. It is an entirely Web-based service, which means there is no software to download, install or configure. And the solution works with the routers people already have in their home.

www.cybertip.ca/app/en/internet_safety: While the Internet can be an incredible social and educational tool, children’s online safety depends on parents/guardians taking a proactive approach to help protect their children from online sexual exploitation. As children grow and the Internet evolves, the activities children undertake online change as well. As it can be difficult to keep up with online developments, Cybertip.ca is committed to providing the public with current and age-appropriate information and resources to help educate Canadians about how to keep children safe while online.
