This week's blog is on....online safety! Online safety is the security of one's identity and personal information. Online safety nowadays is very important because there are many very messed up people out there who would jump at the chance to steal your identity or come to your house and do weird things.  Below are a couple of links for parents who are interested in improving the safety of the home computer.http://www.fbi.gov/stats-services/publications/parent-guide

Here are some tips for the kids reading this.
1. Do not give away real name, or any information that could be used to find you, such as your address or age.
2. Do not share your passwords with anybody (except maybe parents).
3. Do not post anything you would not want your mother to see, whether about yourself or someone else.
4. Do not agree to meet someone in person you've only met online.
5. Do not be too quick to believe someone when they state their age or where they live.
