Message to Children:
Before you provide any information, show your parent or some other responsible adult what you are doing. Be safety smart! Do not provide any personal information, like your name, address, telephone number, or email address without checking with an adult first.
Message to Parents and Guardians:
It is important that you monitor your children's communication on-line to insure that they do not provide personally identifiable information to websites that you feel are unacceptable. Tell your children to ask you or another adult to look at what they are doing first if they wish to provide their name, address, telephone number, or email address to a website.
