Keeping Kids Safe Online
Keeping Kids Safe NetSmartz.org
The unprecedented amount of personal information available on blogs and social networking sites makes them a perfect place for people who would harm children to identify their victims and gain their trust.
Children and teens are often not aware that their words — which may have been intended for a small audience — sometimes find their way to a larger one, especially if they are controversial.
To help stop this dangerous trend, NetSmartz is releasing “Blog Beware” to raise the awareness about the risks associated with these sites and give parents, children, and teachers the tools they need to keep children and teens safer online.

This resource contains safety tips for parents and children and includes a quiz that they can take together. It is also supported by the extensive material available on NetSmartz.org for kids, teens, parents, educators, and law enforcement.
The NetSmartz® Workshop is an interactive, educational safety resource from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® (NCMEC) and Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) for children aged 5 to 17, parents, guardians, educators, and law enforcement that uses age-appropriate, 3-D activities to teach children how to stay safer on the Internet.
