Request Internet Safety Lecture We live in a day and age of technological marvel: computers, the Internet, cellular communication, satellite TV and the list goes on. And the speed at which these technologies are developing is simply astounding: things become "old" not in years or decades, but in weeks and months. Children see this change as the natural order of things and embrace it; many adults can barely keep up. As with many things, those exposed to new concepts at a young age are at a distinct advantage. Perhaps the most revolutionary of these "new" technologies is the Internet. With a click of a button, people can learn about everything from nuclear physics to fly fishing in the Rockies. There is little you can't find on-line if you have the mind to. But the Internet allows for more than the retrieval of information, it can be used to communicate too. Email, chat rooms, instant messaging and news groups are but some of the ways that people "talk" to each other on-line. The Internet, as it is, is an incredible resource for adults and children alike. However, it is not without it's dangers. As in the real world, the virtual world of the Internet is composed of a cross-section of people from our society: many are well meaning, helpful and friendly - and some are not. Frequent the Internet often enough and you will come into contact with unbalanced individuals, con artists and even child predators. For this reason it is incumbent upon parents to become familiar with computers and the Internet and keep a watchful eye on their children's time on-line.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The global Internet offers exciting new opportunities for children and families to research their homework online, communicate with international penpals, and build personal websites to share their creativity with others. But with these opportunities come challenges: how can children remain safe within this ever-expanding global village? Risks range from sites filled with misinformation to sites which expose users to illegal pornography. The problem of pedophiles and others who target children online is also a concern. In order to address these issues, law enforcement, the Internet and online industry, and families, libraries, schools, responsible corporations and community groups must work together. Children may not understand these online risks, and parents may not be familiar enough with current technological and other solutions to these concerns. Key to bringing more families online, and keeping them online, is educating the parents about the range of available options. There are things parents can do to protect their children. Should they wish to, they can make choices about what their children may access online.

Use this safety checklist to help make your home safe for the smallest and most vulnerable members of your family. Then be sure you know the phone numbers of your family physician, your local hospital, and your poison control center. Post them by your telephone so they'll be handy in the event of an incident. Household Dangers Are your dangerous household items stored safely? Medicines, toxic bleaches, oven and drain cleaners, paint solvents, polishes, and waxes should all be locked away in a secure place, out of your child's sight and reach. Don't keep them under a sink or in plain view in your garage or carport. Okay Do you keep all plastic wrapping materials, such as dry-cleaning bags, produce bags and trash bags, away from children? Children playing with plastic wrappings run the risk of suffocation. Never use thin plastic materials to cover mattresses or pillows; protecting these items is not worth the dangers to your child.
Extractions: Home > Parenting The World Wide Web is a wonderful tool; with a little bit of education and caution, surfing the Web can be a great experience for your kids. Steps: Help your child pick out a screen name or user name. Avoid names that include a name and/or an age, such as Johnny10. Surf the Web with your child, letting him or her lead your exploration together (if your child is experienced enough). Visit some sites for children together. Teach your child that other people are using the Web just as you are, and explain that it's hard to tell whether they're telling the truth about themselves.

Warn your child not to give out personal information over the Internet, send pictures of himself or herself, or meet someone in person without your permission.

There are dangers in every part of our society. By educating your children to these dangers and taking appropriate steps to protect them, they can benefit from the wealth of information now available on-line. Here are some tips that will help keep you and your children safe: Communicate: talk to your child about sexual victimization and potential on-line danger. Spend time with your children on-line. Have them teach you about their favorite on-line destinations. Utilize parental controls provided by your service provider and/or blocking software. While electronic chat can be a great place for children to make new friends and discuss various topics of interest, it is also prowled by computer sex offenders. Use of chat rooms, in particular, should be heavily monitored. While parents should utilize these mechanisms they should not totally rely on them.
