Internet Safety Guidelines for Parents
  • Keep the computer in a common room in the house and position the monitor so it's available for public viewing.
  • Establish rules for using the Internet and teach your children important safety guidelines.
  • Use blocking software or filtering programs, but don't rely on them as your only line of defense.
  • Predators often use chat rooms to contact children. Teach children that people online are not always who they say they are.
  • Frequently check the Internet history to see which sites your children are visiting.
  • Monitor your children's e-mail account. Let them know you're checking it, why you're doing it, and talk about potential online danger.
  • Spend time with your children online. Have them show you their favorite sites.
  • If you see anything suspicious or think your child may be a victim of Internet exploitation, contact your local law enforcement agency, local FBI, or national center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678. Website:
