Internet Safety

There are some basic rules to keep in mind when you are on the Internet:

  • NEVER put pictures of yourself online.
  • NEVER use your last name.
  • NEVER say where you live (street, city, area).
  • NEVER enter a chat room.
  • NEVER respond to threatening email or messages.
  • ALWAYS tell an adult (parent or teacher) about scary messages, chats, emails,or other communications.
  • TELL your parents about any ‘new’ friends you meet online.

Parents, there are some simple things you can do to help keep kids safe:

  • Monitor what your child is doing online. Keep your computer in a ‘high traffic’ area.
  • Have your child show you what they like to do online.
  • Sit with your child as they play games, chat, email, etc.
  • TALK constantly about online safety.
  • Install child safety software on computers, phones, iPads, iPods, tablets, etc.
  • Open communication at all times.
