Safe Surfing Tips for Kids:

1. NEVER give out personal information (or send your photograph to strangers) on the Internet. "Personal information" includes your real name, address, phone number, the name of your school, your parents' work address or work phone numbers. If you see a website that's asking for this information, show it to your parents before you do anything.

2. NEVER agree to meet someone in person whom you've only "met" online. Would you get into a car with a stranger? Of course not!

3. Tell your parents - and show them if possible - if you see something that makes you uncomfortable. Don't try to respond to rude messages yourself - it may only make the problem worse.

4. AGREE on a set of rules with your parents and stick to them. Decide what time of day you'll go online, how long you'll stay there and which are the safe places you'll visit. If you want to check out something new, talk to your parents first.

5. Don't download anything unless you've checked with your parents first. "Downloads" are files which can come from a website or be sent as attachments to e-mail messages. While many downloads are OK, some are illegal and some contain "viruses" - nasty programs that can damage your computer.

And remember what my grandmother used to say,
"When in doubt, don't!"
