Internet Safety

For most kids and teens, technology is an important part of their lives. They browse the Web for information, use social networking sites, text, and chat. But there can also be dangers, and it is important for parents to monitor their children's use and teach them how to be safe online:
  • Never give out personal information, such as your full name, address, phone number, or school name
  • Tell an adult if any communication (chat, text, e-mail message) makes you feel threatened or uncomfortable
  • Never send sexually explicit photographs or messages
  • On social networking sites, use privacy controls and only friend people that you know
Of course, some of this advice is good for adults, too.
