Always ask permission to use the Internet.

You may know how to use the Internet, but it is important for your parents and other adults to know what you are doing. They may have their own rules they want you to follow.

Remember these basic rules when looking on the Internet.

Show good manners online.

When talking to someone you do know, you should always be nice and polite.

When in doubt, ask an adult!

If you come across something you think is inappropriate or wrong, let your parents or teacher know. Remember, we always want to make sure we are being safe online.

Netlingo.com tells us that most kids do not report inappropriate Internet activity because they are afraid of losing Internet privileges. Please do not be scared to ask for help!
