JUST FOR KIDS
We believe in the power of Kids and we urge both you and your parents to use and enjoy DreamYard. While we encourage the interactive nature of online media, we strive to educate you and your parents about how to appropriately safeguard your privacy when surfing in the Web. We urge you to check with your parents before entering any information on any website.
By taking responsibility for your children’s online computer use, parents can greatly minimize any potential risks for being online. The best way to assure that your children are having positive online experiences is to stay in touch with what they are doing. One way to do this is to spend time with your children while they are online. Have them show you what they are doing and ask them to teach you how to access the services.
While children and teenagers need a certain amount of privacy, they also need parental involvement and supervision in their daily lives. The same general parenting skills that apply to the “real world” also apply while online.
Make it a family rule to:
1. Never give out identifying information-home address, school name, or telephone number- in a public message such as chat or bulletin boards, and be sure you’re dealing with someone that both you and your child know and trust before giving it out via email. Think carefully before revealing any personal information such as age, marital status, or financial information. Consider using a pseudonym or unlisting your child’s name if your service allows it.
2. Get to know the services your child uses. If you don’t know how to log on, get your child to show you. Find out what types of information it offers, and whether there are ways for parents to block out objectionable material.
3. Never allow a child to arrange a face-to-face meeting with another computer user without parental permission. If a meeting is arranged, make the first one in a public spot, and be sure to accompany your child.
4. Never respond to messages or bulletin board items that are suggestive, obscene, belligerent, threatening, or make you feel uncomfortable. Encourage your children to tell you if they encounter such messages. If you or your child receives a message that is harassing, of a sexual nature, or threatening, forward a copy of the message to your service provider and ask for their assistance.
5. Should you become aware of the transmission, use, or viewing of child pornography while online, immediately report this to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children by calling 1-800-843-5678. You should also notify your online service.
