The Basics...

Here are some basic tips for protecting your kids online....

  • Don't allow your children to give out personal information online. Period.
  • Have rules for what they can and can't say and do in chat rooms or instant message services.

  • Discuss specifically with your children where they can and cannot go on the Web.
  • Buy and use blocking and/or screening software.
