    3. 3. Children Love the Internet <ul><li>The Internet can be a wonderful resource for kids. </li></ul><ul><li>They can use it to research school reports, communicate with teachers and other kids, and play interactive games. </li></ul><ul><li>Kids who are old enough to punch in a few letters on the keyboard can literally access the world. </li></ul>
    4. 4. Our Goals For Today Are… <ul><li>To give you general information about the internet, including some of the things your child can do online. </li></ul><ul><li>To explain actions you can take as a parent or care giver to keep your family safe online. </li></ul><ul><li>To highlight safety tips you can talk over with your child. </li></ul>
    5. 5. What If I Don’t Know Much About the Internet? <ul><li>Learn everything you can. </li></ul><ul><li>Ask your kids to show you where they go. </li></ul><ul><li>Learn chat room lingo (there are many sites online that offer this info). </li></ul><ul><li>Be aware of all access you child may have to the Internet. </li></ul>
    6. 6. Mobile Phones… <ul><li>Can be used to visit websites – including chat rooms. </li></ul><ul><li>Can access internet instantly. </li></ul><ul><li>Can take pictures and video and let you send these via email. </li></ul><ul><li>Children need to think carefully before sending images of themselves or friends. </li></ul>
    7. 7. Statistically Speaking <ul><ul><li>&quot;87% of U.S. teens ages 12 to 17 currently use the Internet, representing about 21 million youth. Of those, approximately 11 million teens go online on a daily basis.&quot; (Pew Internet and American Life, &quot;Teens and Technology,&quot; July 27, 2005.) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Over half (51%) of parents either do not have, or do not know if they have, software on their computers to monitor where their teenagers go online and with whom they interact. (Cox Communications and The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children,“Parents’ Internet Monitoring Study,&quot; February 2005). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>79% of youth unwanted exposure to pornography occurs in the home (Online Victimization of Youth: Five Years Later, 2006). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>65 percent of high school students admit to unsafe, inappropriate, or illegal activities online (Market Wire. November 6, 2006. i-SAFE Inc. December 12, 2006 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>83 percent of parents say there is no excuse for not knowing enough about the Internet to protect your kids or teens (National Attitudinal Poll, Common Sense Media, June 7, 2006 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Pamphlet for parents from the attorney general </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
    8. 8. Numbers to ponder <ul><li>There are presently well over 50 million websites (sites, not pages). </li></ul><ul><li>The first Netcraft survey in August 1995 found 18,957 hosts. Previous milestones in the survey were reached in April 1997 (1 million sites), February 2000 (10 million), September 2000 (20 million) and July 2001 (30 million). </li></ul>
    9. 9. Scary thoughts <ul><li>How many of those 50 million websites do you think are acceptable for your child to view? </li></ul><ul><li>How many do you think are blatantly vulgar? </li></ul><ul><li>How many are “fake” sites where information is presented to be accurate but lacks resources and references to provide proof of their claims? </li></ul>
    10. 10. How can you see where they have been? <ul><li>Set up the Internet History: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Open the Internet </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Go to Tools/Internet Options </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Make sure the “Days to keep pages in history” setting is fairly high </li></ul></ul>
    11. 11. <ul><li>If you suspect your child has accessed inappropriate areas, check the history: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Click on the History Icon (this may look different on other systems) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Check the sites listed-make sure they are familiar and appropriate </li></ul></ul>
    12. 12. <ul><li>Be aware that your child may know more about the internet than you do, and may erase the history to cover his or her tracks. </li></ul>
