Howdy kids! I’m your friend, Cursor. Remember, the Internet is like a big city with great places to go, but you have to be careful. That’s why we have three rules for Internet safety:

Keep. Don’t meet. Tell.

  • Keepyour personal information protected. Never give your name,

address, phone number, the name of your school, or a picture of

yourself to anyone online.

  • Don’t meetin person anyone you’ve met on the Net.
  • Tell a parent, teacher, or trusted adult if you feel uncomfortable

about anything you see on the Internet.
