How to monitor your child’s online behaviour

This week on Focus Montreal, learn from a cyber expert what you should be doing to monitor your child’s online behaviour.

Monitoring online behaviour in children

Two teenage boys accused of plotting to rape and murder their classmates in Saint-Hyacinthe, Que. made headline news across the province this week.

The teens face a total of 18 charges, including multiple counts of conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit a criminal act.

Fortunately the plot was foiled thanks to one of the teens’ mom who turned them in after seeing their plan on Facebook.

Cyber security expert, Terry Cutler, called that mom “very brave.”

In an interview earlier this week, Cutler discussed how important it is for parents to know what their children are doing online.

The teens, aged 14 and 16, are expected back in court Oct. 18.
