Internet Safety

The Internet is an exciting tool that puts vast amounts of information at our fingertips almost instantly. With the click of a mouse, you can be chatting with friends, making an online purchase, doing research for a homework assignment, or playing a game with someone in another country.

However, there are also many risks on the Internet. The Internet is an anonymous place with no face-to-face contact. Thieves and predators take advantage of this anonymity, and pretend to be someone other than who they really are.

It is important to be cyber-smart and make your experience online a safe one. It is critically important that parents supervise their children’s Internet use. As we’ve seen all too often, trusting children are particularly vulnerable to sexual predators and other cyber-criminals.
