Internet Tips for Parents
Take the trip together. Take the time to see what your kids are doing online and what their interests are.
Teach kids never to give out their personal information to people they meet online especially in public places like chat rooms and bulletin boards.
Instruct your child never to plan a face-to-face meeting alone with online acquaintances.
Tell your child not to respond when they receive offensive or dangerous email, chat, or other communications.
Establish clear ground rules for Internet use for your kids. Decide whether or not to use parental control tools or protective software.
Place your computer in the family room or another open area of your home. Or use the computer together at a library, school, or community center.
