Tips for Children on Internet Safety
Remember the "Front Door Rule".
Never put anything on your profile that you wouldn't put on your front door e.g.
- your real name
- your date of birth
- a photo of yourself.
We only let in people we know.
Your Digital Footprint
Your digital footprint is a record of everything you do and leave on the internet.
You are leaving it on private property.
You have no control over it.
"The T-Shirt Rule"
Never say anything online that you would not wear on a t-shirt.
Do not make a comment to someone or about someone if you would not wear it on a t-shirt.
Do not use language you would not wear on a t-shirt.
Stop, Block and Tell
If someone online asks you for personal information OR
If someone online is bullying you-
STOP all communication with that person.
BLOCK them from your account.
TELL a trusted adult.
