  Kid Safety Tip# 1

There are a few risks for children who use the Internet or other online services. Teenagers are particularly at risk because they often go online unsupervised and are more likely than younger children to participate in online discussions regarding companionship, relationships, or sexual activity. If you have a teen in your family or you are a teenager, check out Teen Safety on the Information Highway ( or order a free copy by calling 1-800-843-5678.

Wheels Safety Tips:

Always wear a helmet with reflective tape attached
Wear light colored clothing so you can be seen
Always ride with a friend
Be sensible, never show off
Watch for potholes, sewer gratings, cracks, railroad tracks, loose gravel, broken glass...anything that might cause you to spill
Leave earphones at home
Carry enough money or a telephone calling card to make a phone call or dial 9-1-1 in an emergency
Tell someone where you are going and when you will be back
When approaching an intersection, stay back and out of the way of a car that might be turning.

 Kid Safety Tip# 2

Internet Safety Tips:

  • Just as you stay away from strangers on the street, be careful about strangers on the Internet.
  • If anyone uses nasty language or mentions things that make you uncomfortable, don't respond and log off.
  • Never give your real last name, address, or telephone number to anyone; if someone asks for this information (or for your password) , don't respond. Log off and tell a trusted adult.
  • Never agree to meet with someone you've talked with on the Internet without asking permission from your parents first.
  • There are places on the NET which are for adults only.  If you find yourself in an "adults-only" place, or anywhere you think you shouldn't be, leave! There are plenty of good "kid places" on the net.
