Practical Tips and recommendations for parents: In order to avoid the online threats that children can face on the Internet, parents should follow some simple but very effective rules. 

  • Do not place the computer directly in the child room. Keep it in a visible place in the house. This way you can walk by, check what is on the screen and even ask questions. If you see that your child quickly closes the screen when you are around, this is a red flag that needs further investigations. 
  • Spend as much time as possible with your children on the computer / Internet. Show them that you are interested in their online friends just like you know their real-life friends.
  • Play together and let them show you what new things they have learned or the things they like. This way you will help them identify inappropriate communications. 

 According to the children age, schedule computer / Internet use sessions and even set limit traffic. 
 Allow access only to certain websites previously agreed together with your children. You can check with the children's teachers for suggested Web sites and for recommendations for good resources online. 
 

Educate your kids to:

Always use a nickname instead of real name 
Never give out personal information (name, address, age, telephone number, password, credit card number, and so on) in chat rooms and email 
Always inform you if they receive any suspicious requests 
Never exchange photographs over the Internet 
Never agree to meet anyone in person that you met in a chat room
