On-line Safety for Children

Be aware of your child's online activities and be sure to maintain rules of usage, especially if they frequent chatrooms. It is important to instruct your children:

to never arrange a face-to-face meeting with someone they met online

to never upload (post) pictures of themselves onto the Internet or online service to people they do not personally know

to never give out identifying information such as their name, home address, school name or telephone number

to never download pictures from an unknown source, as there is a good chance there could be sexually explicit images

to never respond to messages or bulletin board postings that are suggestive, obscene, belligerent or harassing

that whatever they are told on-line may or may not be true
