Parents' Internet Safety Pledge
(Please print out this page for your use.)

  1. I will get to know the services and web sites my child uses. If I don't know how to use them, I will get my child to show me how.
  2. I will set reasonable rules and guidelines for computer use by my children, and will discuss these rules and post them near the computer as a reminder. I will remember to monitor their compliance with these rules, especially when it comes to the amount of time they spend on the computer.
  3. I will not overreact if my child tells me about a problem he or she is having on the Internet. Instead, we will work together to try to solve the problem and prevent it from happening again.
  4. I promise not to use a computer or the Internet as an electronic babysitter.
  5. I will help make the Internet a family activity and ask my child to help plan family events using the Internet.
  6. I will try get to know my child's "online friends" just as I try get to know his or her other friends.

I agree to follow the above pledge for online safety.

(Parent's Signature)

I understand that my parent has agreed to these rules and agree to help my parent explore the Internet with me.
