• Make it a family rule to never give out identifying information-home address, school name or home and cellular telephone numbers on public chat Web Sites or bulletin boards; and be sure you're dealing with someone that both you and your child know and trust before giving out this information via e-mail.
  • Get to know the Internet and any services your child uses.
  • Never allow a child to arrange a face-to-face meeting with another computer user without parental permission and supervision.
  • Never respond to messages or bulletin board items that are suggestive, obscene, belligerent, threatening or make you feel uncomfortable.
  • Encourage your children to tell you if they encounter such messages.
  • Talk with your children about what they can and cannot do online.
  • Check out blocking, filtering and ratings. Realize that filtering programs can't protect your child from all dangers in cyberspace. Filtering programs are not a substitute for good judgment or critical thinking. With or without filters, kids and their parents need to be Internet savvy.
  • Consider keeping the computer in a family room rather than a child's bedroom.
  • Get to know your children's online friends just as you get to know all of their other friends.
