Internet Safety

Internet Guidelines for Children (10 years old and younger):

  • Never give your name, address or phone number to anyone on the Internet.

  • Do not go into chat rooms without your parent's help.

  • If you get a message that makes you feel uncomfortable, don't respond to it and be sure to tell your parents.

  • Don't join a mailing list without your parents' permission.

  • Don't open e-mail from anyone you don't know. It might be a virus which could damage your computer.

  • Don't believe everything people on the Internet tell you. Since you can't see the other person, you don't know who they really are.

  • Never agree to buy or trade anything on the Internet without your parents' permission.

  • Never agree to meet anyone you met on the Internet and never send pictures of yourself over the Internet.

If you're not sure about something, it's always okay to ask mom or dad.>
