KIDS – BE SAFE!

The Internet is a great place to hang out, browse lots of websites, and to share comments and ideas with people who like the same things you do. But the net isn’t always a safe place, so we’ve put together some tips for you to follow while you’re surfing the internet.

1. Be Safe! Never give out any personal information, including you name, your address or phone number, your parent’s names, and the name of your school, your teacher or your friends.

2. If you see something on the internet that makes you uncomfortable – whether it’s on the web or it’s sent to you – tell your mom or dad, or an adult you can talk to.

3. Never agree to meet anyone you have “met” online.

4. Never send your picture over the Internet without checking with your parents or another adult first.

5. Don’t answer mean messages, or messages asking for personal information. If you do get a message like that – tell your parents or an adult you can trust right away.

6. Make sure you obey the rules that your parents (or an adult you can trust) have set out for you.

7. Never use your real name when you join a chat or online game. Never tell anyone your real name or your password. Make up a name, or use a favourite nickname that you can remember.

8. Get your parents permission to play on this site, and don’t forget to make sure they say its ok before you send us any information.
