    First, Netsmartz suggests kids UYN- Use Your Netsmarts.

    We also discussed the four Internet safety rules:

    1. I will tell my trusted adult if anything makes me feel sad, scared, or confused.
    2. I will ask my trusted adult before sharing information like my name, address, and phone number.
    3. I won't meet face-to-face with anyone from the Internet.
    4. I will always use good netiquette and not be rude or mean online.

    In addition, the Commonwealth's Information Security Office has compiled a list of websites and tutorials that provide more information to help you keep your family safe on the Internet.

    The office maintains two sets of links- one for parents, the other for children:
