Internet Safety for Children
The most important thing to remember is that when you're online in any kind of a public forum, you're out in public and anyone can read whatever you post. You should never post anything on the Internet that you wouldn't want known to the public at large. You should also remember that people you meet in cyberspace might not be who they seem to be.

Guidelines for Parents

  • Just as you stay away from strangers on the street, be careful about strangers on the Internet.

  • If anyone uses nasty language or mentions things that make you uncomfortable, don't respond and log off.

  • Never give your real last name, address, or telephone number to anyone; if someone asks for this information (or for your password) , don't respond. Log off and tell a trusted adult.

  • Never agree to meet with someone you've talked with on the Internet without asking permission from your parents first.

  • There are places on the NET which are for adults only; if you find yourself in an "adults-only" place, or anywhere you think you shouldn't be, leave! There are plenty of good "kid places" on the net.
