Using a computer and surfing the internet can be great fun.  There is so much to see and do.   

However, it is really important, you do it safely.

Please use the following rules to ensure you have fun, but stay safe on the internet.  Don't forget to talk to someone you trust if you are not sure about something. 

The SMART rules:

SAFE     -   stay safe, don't give out personal information

MEETING   -  only meet someone from the internet with your parents

ACCEPTING  -   emails, IM, texts from strangers can lead to problems

RELIABLE   -   information on the internet may not be true

TELL     -    a trusted adult if anything online makes you feel uncomfortable
