Introduction
Using the Internet has become a way of life for this centuryís kids. As technology continues to advance, the Internet is essential for communication, education and fun. However, the advances in real-time information sharing can pose serious threats to children. In addition to the Internet predators that many parents are aware of, children are also at risk for stalking, bullying, addiction, legal consequences and other on-line dangers. When allowing children to use the Internet, parents should use the tips listed below to ensure that all members of the family can enjoy a safe and fun on-line environment.

1. Set Rules. Determine what your child needs to use the computer for. This could be school-related or just for entertainment. Make sure your child knows what he or she is and is not allowed to do on the computer. Boundaries can be set based on a child’s age and maturity level, and can include site restrictions, program use, and activities. Establish consequences for breaking the rules.
2. Make a Pact. Create a family contract regarding Internet use. This document can contain house rules about on-line conduct. Basic templates can be found on-line, and you can modify the document to include your childrenís input when preparing a final draft. You may also want to include facts and statistics about on-line safety to remind children of the dangers. Have children read and sign the contract, and post it near the computer area for easy reference.
3. Take the Quiz. Many Internet safety websites offer on-line multiple choice quizzes that children can take to test their knowledge about being safe on-line. After discussing Internet safety with your child, suggest they take one of the quizzes to show you what they know.
