Kids' Net Safety Rules. It's OK...

…to surf the Net but remember there are bad things on the Net, too. You will know the bad stuff when you see it or read it and feel uncomfortable. If you find it, leave the site.

…to talk or chat with people on the Net but remember that they are still strangers and could hurt you. Net friends are fun, but don't give them your home address, phone number or tell them where you go to school. Don't tell them about your family. Don't arrange to meet someone you met on the Net.

…to look for fun stuff on the Net but there are places on the Net which are for adults only. If you find yourself in an "adults only" place, or anywhere you think you shouldn't be, leave this site.

…to look at stuff that's for sale on the Net but don't order anything, as these need your name, address and credit card number. Remember any offer that is "too good to be true" probably is.
