NEVER ever put your picture on the internet OR let somebody else put it on the internet unless your parents say it is all right. Don't download any files on to the family or school computer without your parents or teacher's help or permission.
NEVER, never ever agree to meet an online "friend" somewhere in the real world. Let your parents know if you want to meet someone and let them decide if it is safe and reasonable... then take them with you. This is THE ONLY safe way to do this!
Don't believe everything a person you meet on the internet says about themselves. Think about how easy it is for you to "fake it" on line and remember it is just as easy for everybody else to do the same. Even if somebody says they are a peer, remember that they can very easily lie and don't be fooled.
If ANYBODY on the internet says or does something that scares or bothers you, stop talking to them right a way, never talk to them again, and TELL YOUR PARENTS OR AN ADULT YOU TRUST RIGHT AWAY.
If ANYBODY online threatens you, your family, or anybody else TELL YOUR PARENTS AND/OR THE TEACHER.
Remember it is always better to be safe than to be sorry!
