KIDS SURFER NOTES
The web is a great place to hang out, to find out stuff, and to share comments and ideas with people who are into the same kind of stuff you are. But the net isn't always a safe place - so we've put together some tips for you to read that will help you handle situations if they come up. 1. First thing is don't give out personal information without asking your parents. Personal information can mean: • your name • your address • your phone number • your mom or dad's name • the name of your school, your teacher or your friends 2. Second is if you run into 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, and get them to deal with it. 3. Never agree to meet anyone you have "met" online without asking your parents, or another adult first. 4. If your parents agree to you meeting that person, bring one of your parents: get them to take you to meet the person - and make sure you meet in a public place. 5. Never send your picture over the internet without checking with your parents or another adult. 6. Don't answer mean messages, or rude ones, or messages asking for personal information. 7. If you do get a message like that - tell your parents right away, so they can help you deal with it. 8. Make sure you obey the rules that your parents have set-out for you. 9. Make up a cool nickname for when you join a chat or a game online - Never use your real name. 10. Never tell anyone your real name or your password. 11. Get your parents to read the safety for parents tips.
SAFETY FOR PARENTS
The web is a great place for kids to hang out and learn about topics that are of interest to them. However, there are areas on the internet that are not appropriate for children. The guidelines we have drawn up are a starting point for parents of children who surf. The most important thing is to be aware of what your children are doing online. This may mean surfing with your children, or talking to them about the sites that they like, or that they have recently discovered on the web. Make surfing a family activity, particularly with young children. Set ground rules, so each person knows what is expected of them. For example, you could go through the safety tips together so everyone understands the whats and the whys. Software solutions: Some browsers can use a password feature to lock use • There are software programs which allow the blocking of certain sites - each program works differently and can be adapted based on individual parenting styles. Some are more flexible than others, so you may want to shop around. Nick Canada site checks all the links out of its Websites to try to provide the best and safest environment for kids to explore.
