Golden Rules For family Internet usage
- Keep personal information confidential. For example don't give out your name, age, or phone number.
- Get to know the services and websites that your child uses.
- Don't believe everything you read or see online.
- Encourage children to tell you about anything they find that is suggestive, obscene, threatening or makes them feel uncomfortable.
- Don't immediately blame the child if they receive or access something obscene - this may have been done accidentally.
- Use the Internet as a family activity and if possible, keep the computer in a family room rather than in a child's bedroom.
- Try to get to know your child's online friends as you would their other friends.
- Try not to use the PC or the Internet as an electronic babysitter.
- Set your own golden rules and after discussing them, stick them at the side of the computer.
