Internet Safety Tips for Children:

  • Always ask a parent or teacher before sharing any personal information online, such as your name, address, or phone number.
  • Be careful what you post online – remember that once something is on the internet, it’s there forever. Words can be hurtful so think is it kind? If not, don’t post it.
  • Don’t talk to strangers online, even if they seem friendly.
  • If someone is being mean to you online, tell a parent or teacher right away.
