County Extension Educator U A CONTRACT TO PROTET YOUR CHILD WHEN ON INTERNET To keep children safe, parents tell them, "Don't talk to strangers." Yet talking to strangers is much of what the Internet is all about. Kids face many dangers on the information highway. Those dangers include child molesters, pornographers, rapists and stalkers who go on line to find victims. There are a lot of goods things on the Internet that outweigh banning the use of the internet from your child. Even if your child doesn't have a computer at home, she may have access to on-line services at school, the public library or a friend's house. Ask your child to sign a contract for his or her on-line computer use. Here's a sample: Contract for On-Line Use On-line activity is a privilege I will not abuse. I agree to: * Limit my time on-line to hours per month. * Never give out my name, address, phone number or school to anyone while I'm on-line. * Report to you anyone on-line who asks for personal information. * Tell you if anyone sends me messages or photographs that make me feel uncomfortable. * Never arrange to meet friends I have made on-line, unless you are at the meeting. * Not spend time in adult chat- rooms or news groups. * Not use bad language or send cruel messages on-line. If I break any of these promises, I will: * Pay all charges incurred for exceeding the on-line time agreed to above. * Remain off-line for a period not to exceed one week per broken promise. Using the Internet canJ valuable experience for an including children. It is a w .... resources, that can take one they will never have the op to visit in person.
