Educating Children About How to Use the Internet Guidelines for monitoring your child’s social behavior online: • Restrict online “friends” only to people that your child knows • Require that you review each potential “friend” prior to acceptance • Make sure your child understands that he is not responsible for what his “friends” post on his site, but that he is responsible for deleting inappropriate messages and asking that it not happen again www.uknowkids.com
  4. 4. Handling Predators Check for these indications that your child may be communicating with a predator: • He is secretive about his online friends • He is suddenly talking a lot about a “new friend” that he does not know from school • This “new friend” seems too similar to your child, or your child cannot give express details about the friend such as his last name, his teacher at school or his siblings. www.uknowkids.com

Cyberbullying Look for the following signs to determine if your child may be the victim of cyberbullying: • Sudden changes in personality, such as being more withdrawn, angry or sensitive • Reluctance to go to school or participate in activities that he enjoys • Agitation after spending time online • Suddenly closing down social networking accounts or email addresses www.uknowkids.com
  6. 6. Privacy and Security Risks Use the following discussion points to structure a conversion about Internet privacy and security: • Make sure that your child understands the difference between “real” life and “virtual” life • Never share credit card information with anyone, or use a credit card online without your direct permission and supervision • Never share passwords or account information with anybody, even if a request looks legitimate Most companies will never ask for a personal information in an email www.uknowkids.com

What to do in an Emergency Give your child these guidelines for handling emergency situations that may arise on the Internet: • If something feels weird, stop • Always be honest about your activities online, even if you think that you may have done something against the rules, if you feel that you may be in danger, it is important that you are upfront about the situation • If you are fearful of a person that you encountered online, or a situation that has arisen, immediately tell your parents www.uknowkids.com
