A new website launched by the U.S. bishops' communication department and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America is striving to provide internet safety advice for families.
The site, www.faithandsafety.org, aims to be a resource for parents wanting to help their children navigate the internet, mobile devices and other technologies safely and within a "faith framework."
Along with its associated Facebook and Twitter accounts, the website offers resources aimed at both internet safety and growing in faith.
"Our children look to their parents for wisdom and guidance," said Archbishop Demetrios of the Greek Orthodox Church in America. "However, many parents feel somewhat ill-equipped to help their children traverse the unfamiliar terrain of the digital social world."
