-Police Commissioner Karl O'Callaghan (WA)

The Web and Online Dangers

  • The Internet/ WEB is a very real potential threat to children. The anonymity of the Web allows adults to pose as children or try to set up a face-to-face meeting. Young teens can also be lured into virtual relationships with older adults that may turn into actual encounters.
  • Never give out identifying or personal information in a public message. (Posting home address, school name, phone number, etc. in a chat or bulletin board.)
  • Be sure you're dealing with someone you and your child both know and trust before giving detailed information out.
  • Consider using a pseudonym or unlisting your child's name.
  • Know the service your child uses. If you don't know how to log on, get your child to show you. Find out what types of information it offers, and if there are ways to block objectionable material.
  • Never allow a face-to-face meeting without permission and supervision. If a meeting is arranged, make the first one in a public spot, and be sure to accompany your child. Everything you read online may not be true. Be very careful about any offers that involve a meeting or a visit.
  • Never respond to messages that are suggestive, obscene, belligerent, threatening, or make you uncomfortable. Encourage your child to tell you if they receive any such messages. If they do, forward a copy to your Internet Service Provider and ask for help.

Some Web Rules for Kids

  • I will not give out any personal information such as my last name, address, telephone number, parents' info, or the name or location of my school without my parents' permission.
  • I will never send anyone my picture or anything else without first checking with my parents.
  • I will tell my parents right away if I come across any information that makes me feel uncomfortable.
  • I will never agree to a face-to-face meeting with anyone online without first checking with my parents. If my parents agree to the meeting, I will be sure it is in a public place and go with guardian.
  • I will not respond to any messages that are mean or make me uncomfortable in any way. It is not my fault if I get a message like that. I will tell my parents right away, and they can contact our online service.
  • I will talk with my parents so that we can set up rules for going online. We'll decide when I can be online, how long, and places I can visit. I will not break the rules without their permission.
