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
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
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.
