Kids Online Contract

 

   


1) I WILL NOT TELL A STRANGER WHO I AM OR WHERE I LIVE

I wonít give out my name, number, address or identifying information to anyone on the internet, even if they seem to be my friend. I will always tell my parents when someone asks for this kind of information, even if itís a cartoon character I like. I wonít send pictures of myself to strangers online.

2) MY PARENTS AND I ARE A TEAM

I will teach my parents or adults responsible for me how to use the internet. I will show them where I go and what I do. I can teach them how to "surf", and they can teach me how to stay safe. We are a team. Teams win when they work together.

3) I CAN SAY NO

I wonít let other kids talk me into doing something on the internet that my parents wouldnít want me to do. I am strong and responsible, and I might sometimes need to tell someone "no" in order to do the right thing.

4) I WILL SHARE E-MAIL FROM STRANGERS WITH MY PARENTS

I will not open email or look at any messages from a stranger without my parents knowing about it. If someone sends me email that is not a person my parents know, I will make sure to tell them. I will not answer email from strangers unless my parents say "ok". I will not accept an offer to visit a web site unless my parents are there with me.

5) STRANGERS IN CHAT ROOMS CAN BE GOOD OR BAD, BUT THEY ARE STILL STRANGERS

I will not visit chat rooms unless my parents know about it. I know that people sometimes pretend to be "different" on the internet than they really are. Sometimes a grown-up might pretend to be a kid. I need to be careful, and not always believe what people say in chat rooms.

6) SAFE DISTANCE FROM STRANGERS

No matter where I am on the internet, I am in a place where there are many people who can freely come and freely go. The internet is like a big city. Some of these people will be strangers to me, and I will follow safety rules with these strangers as I follow safety rules with strangers in real life. There are good people and there are bad people everywhere, and I will always keep strangers at a "safe distance". On the internet that means that I only do what my parents, teachers or guardians say is ok to do. And it also means that I will not meet with an internet friend without asking my family first and making sure they come with me.

7) MY FAMILY & TEACHERS CARE ABOUT ME - BAD THINGS ON THE INTERNET ARE NOT MY FAULT

If someone on the internet says something bad to me, itís not my fault. I am not a bad person if someone else does something that is bad. If someone does something bad or threatens me, I will not answer them. I know that I can trust my parents, teachers and other adults in my family, and I know that I can tell them right away. They will know what to do about it.

REMEMBER......WEB WISE KIDSô PLAY IT SAFE!
