Internet Safety Tip Card
Many kids and teens don’t realize that the types of websites they visit, the information they post about themselves, and the off-hand remarks they sometimes make can lead to trouble. Protecting children and teens from Internet predators and scam artists is a very serious issue. Parents, play it safe. Talk about Internet safety with your kids, and teach them a few simple rules:
- They should never arrange a face-to-face meeting with someone they met online.
- They should never upload or post pictures of themselves onto the Internet, or online service, to people they do not personally know.
- Never give out identifying information such as their name, home address, school name, or telephone number.
- Never download pictures from an unknown source, as there is a good chance these can be sexually explicit images.
- Never respond to messages or bulletin board postings that are suggestive, obscene, belligerent, or harassing.
- And remember, whatever they see online, may or may not be true.
