Free Internet Safety Kit  (Y,M,O,T)
Did you know that two in five online teens (42%) said they've posted information about themselves on the Internet so others can see it and contact them? And nearly half of the teen respondents (47%) to a 2005 survey by Teen Research Unlimited admitted that they've used code words to alert others online to a parent's immediate presence--an effort to disguise a conversation about which a guardian might not approve. More than one in four (28%) said they use such lingo daily.In an effort to protect children by informing parents, the Polly Klaas Foundation has created an Internet Safety Kit. When parents obtain the free Internet Safety Kit, they will be offered a free download of Wired with Wisdom ($19.95 value). Wired with Wisdom grew out of the real need many parents express to catch up with their technologically sophisticated children. In this swift-moving online age, parents often feel overwhelmed or under-qualified to address children's Internet habits.Together, the Internet Safety Kit and Wired With Wisdom provide busy parents practical, workable solutions to help manage their family's Internet safety, including email, personal websites, chat rooms, social networking and instant messaging as well as recognizing and avoiding online predators.
