Parents As Internet Partners
An Internet Tutorial for Parents

Internet Logo

The Internet is an amazing resource for information and entertainment. Children learn how to use computers and the Internet almost as soon as they go to school. In fact, children often know far more about computers and the Internet than parents do because parents have fewer opportunities to learn about computers and the Internet unless it is required in the workplace.

This website was developed to educate parents about the Internet and the World Wide Web (WWW) and the effective use of its resources. With such instruction, you can be an active, positive participant in your child's use of the Internet and educational pursuits.

The website begins with a brief introduction and contains different topics for you to select and review at your own pace before moving onto the next topic. Click your mouse on the button for the topic you wish to view. We have tried to make a user-friendly website and have avoided technical explanations, etc. In some sections, you will find links to additional Internet resources if you require more details or information on a topic.

This instructional website was funded by a 2001/2002 Parent & Child Library Services Grant from the New York State Education Department awarded to the Henry Waldinger Memorial Library, Valley Stream, Long Island, New York. The Project Director and author of this website was Assistant Director Mamie Eng.

The Henry Waldinger also purchased over 100 books and videos on using the Internet and computers with funds from the grant. A bibliography of these materials is available online or upon request in the Children's Room of the library.
