Here are some online rules recommended by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children:
I will not give out personal
information, such as my address, telephone number, or the name and location of my
school, without my parent’s permission.
I will tell my parents right
away if I come across any information online that makes me feel uncomfortable.
I will never agree to get
together with someone I meet online without first checking with my parents. If my parents agree to this meeting, I will
make sure that it is in a public place and I will bring an adult along.
I will never send a person
my picture or anything else without first checking with my parents.
I will not respond to
messages that are mean or in any way make me feel uncomfortable. It is not my fault if I get a message like
that. If I do, I will tell my parents
right away so they can contact the online service provider.
I will talk with my parents so that they can set up rules for using a computer online. We will decide on the time of day that I can go online, the length of time I can be online and appropriate sites for me to visit. I will not access other sites or break these rules without their permission.
