AURORA, Ill. – To help parents and community members better protect their children online, state Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, is hosting a Family Internet Safety Seminar on Thursday, Oct. 19 at 6 p.m. at the Aurora Library-Eola Road Branch, located at 555 S. Eola Rd in Aurora.

“The internet can be an incredible resource for our families, but it is also a tool criminals use to prey on our children and target our personal financial information,” Kifowit said. “My event will address how to teach children to avoid scams, protect sensitive information, and avoid dangerous interactions with strangers. We will also show parents how they can monitor their child’s online usage and limit inappropriate content.”

Kifowit’s Family Internet Safety Seminar will be an information session featuring Oswego Community School District 308 Communication Director Theresa Komitas. As seating is limited at the library, those interested in attending the information session are encouraged to RSVP by calling Kifowit’s constituent service office at 630-585-1308 or by email at

“When used properly, the internet is vital and helpful tool that can enhance our children’s education,” Kifowit said. “It is important that parents know how to ensure their children’s safety and privacy while online.”
