You are a Digital Kid!

Be safe when using a computer with these tips.

We live in a big world.

When you are on the computer using the internet you can connect to family and friends, how cool. We are not just connected to family and friends though.


The internet allows people from all over the world to connect and many of these people are strangers to us. Just like we do not talk to strangers when alone, we do not talk to strangers when we are on the computer. These strangers may ask for our name, phone number, birthday or address and we must never give it to them. We do not know what these strangers may do with our information.

Here is a video that will help us understand some rules for when we are on the internet and computer.


Showing respect on the computers.

  • Computers and materials found on computers are someones property. We like for our things to be respected and we must respect theirs.
  • Treat others as you would like to be treated and never harm anyone over the computer.

I promise and so should you!

  1. I will tell my parents or an adult if I am ever sad, confused, or scared by anything I see on the computer.
  2. I will never give out my name, birthday, address, or phone number unless given permission by my parents.
  3. I will never meet face-to-face with someone who is trying to talk to me on the computer.
  4. I will only respond to messages or emails from people I know.
  5. I will not open emails from people I do not know.
