Safety tips for kids

The internet is a wonderful place to learn, play, and communicate with others, but it also has some risks and dangers. Here are some tips for kids to stay safe online:
- Never share your personal information, such as your full name, address, phone number, or school name, with anyone you don’t know or trust. Some people may pretend to be someone else to trick you or harm you.
- Be careful about what you post or share online. Once something is on the internet, it can be hard to delete or control who sees it. Think before you click and don’t post anything that could hurt your reputation or someone else’s feelings.
- Don’t open any email, message, or link from someone you don’t know or trust. It could be a scam or a virus that could damage your device or steal your information. If you are not sure, ask your parents or guardians first.
- Be respectful and kind to others online. Don’t bully, harass, or insult anyone, even if you disagree with them. Treat others the way you want to be treated and report any abusive or inappropriate behavior to your parents, guardians, or the website administrators.
- Have fun and explore the internet, but don’t spend too much time online. Balance your screen time with other activities, such as reading, playing outside, or spending time with your family and friends. Remember that the internet is not a substitute for real life and real relationships.
