Tips To Help Keep Children Safe From Internet (NAPSA)-Parents don't have to be Computer experts to keep their children safe online. Accordin to the Univer- sity' Ne v Hampshire's Crimes Against Children Research Center, the first step is to realize that one out of every five youths who use the Internet receives an online sexual approach of so- licitation during a one,year period. Even scarier, in 15 per- cent of such cases, the so- licitor attempts to meet the child in person. And, only 25 percent of those children who encounter a sexual so- licitation tell a parent. Worse yet, if asked, more than 29 percent of Internet- using children will freely give out their home address, e-mail address and other personal information online. The Interuet Keep Safe Coalition and the GEICO Educational Foundation have teamed up with the University of New Hamp- shire's Crimes Against Chil- dren Research Center to let parents know how to help keep children safe online: 1. Keep the computer in a common room in the house and position the moni- tor so it's available for public viewing. 2. Establish rules for using the Internet and teach your child important safety guidelines, 3. Use blocking soft- ware or filtering programs, but don't rely on them as your only line of defense. 4. Predators often use chat rooms to contact chil' dren. Teach children that people online are not always who they say they are. 5. Frequently check your computer's Interuet history to see what sites your child is visiting. 6. Monitor your child's e-mail account. Let him or her know you're checking it and why. Talk with your child about potential online dangers. 7. Spend time with your children when they're online. Have them show you their favorite sites. 8. If you see anything suspicious or think that your child may be a victim of In- ternet exploitation, contact your local FBI office or law enforcement agency. 9. Tell your children to protect their personal in- formation. Children should never give their real name, address, phone number, the name of their school or a pic- ture of themselves to anyone they meet online. Never let your child meet in person with anyone they've met on the Interuet. Teach children to tell a parent, teacher or trusted adult if they feel uncomfort- able about anything they've seen online.
