Parents play an important role in their children’s safety online – especially when it comes to social networking.

Our friends at the Identity Theft Resource Center, a nationally-recognized non-profit focusing on identity theft, want to learn more about how parents monitor their children’s interaction on social networking sites.

You can help them by taking a short survey:

By taking the survey, ITRC will be able to better understand the role parents play in their children’s online activities and educate other parents.

“The survey results will help the ITRC in developing informative materials and documents addressing these relevant issues.  These publications aim to educate parents in order to better protect their children,” ITRC Social Media Coordinator Nikki Junker says.

Once you take the survey, you will also be entered to win one of five $100 prizes. The survey is open until May 31. The $100 prize winners will be announced and contacted on June 1. 

The results will be posted on ITRC’s website once the survey is complete.
