Internet safety

Internet best practices for parents and kids

  • NEVER give out personal information such as your name, home address, school name or telephone number in a chat room or on a bulletin boards.  Also, never send a picture of yourself to someone you chat with on the computer without your parent's permission.
  • NEVER write to someone who has made you feel uncomfortable or scared.
  • DO NOT meet someone or have them visit you without the permission of your parents.
  • TELL your parents right away if you read anything on the Internet that makes you feel uncomfortable.
  • REMEMBER that people online may not be who they say they are.  Someone who says that "SHE" is a "12-YEAR-OLD GIRL" could really be an older man.
