  1. Never give out personal information on the Internet. Don’t share your real name, where you live, where you go to school or anything about your family.
  2. It is best not to talk to strangers, just like when you are at the park or in a store. Someone may pretend to be someone he or she is not.
  3. Don’t agree to meet anyone you have talked to online. Tell your parents if an online friend wants to get together so your parents know all about it.
  4. If you fill out a personal profile that other kids can read online, don’t write anything that says too much about you. You may think only your friends can see it, but strangers can find out about you, too.
  5. Log off immediately if you see or read something that upsets you. Tell your parents or a teacher if something like that happens.
  6. Protect your password. No one should ever ask you for it for any reason.
  7. Don’t buy anything over the Internet without your parent’s approval. Don’t give out a credit card number without your parent’s knowledge.
  8. Never send pictures over the Internet unless your parents know about it.
  9. Ask your parent’s permission to visit an online chat room.
  10. Remember that people online may not be who they say they are. Someone who says that “she” is a “12-year-old girl” could really be an older man.
