Internet Safety Tips For Kids
We strongly encourage all parents to go online with their kids. Here are a few Internet Safety Tips For Kids that will help to make your child's online experience safer and more pleasant:
Teach kids never to give personal information, unless supervised by a parent or responsible adult. Personal information includes the child's photo, name, age, gender, address, phone number, school, sports clubs, and so on.
Know the Web sites your kids are visiting and which sites are appropriate. If the site doesn't meet with your approval, do not be afraid to say NO to your child. Your child may not like it, but he or she will be safe.
Never permit kids or teens to access the Internet behind locked doors. Always monitor your child's online activities. You may trust your kids, but you CANNOT trust the unscrupulous people and marketers they encounter online who will use cunning methods to deceive them.
