The Internet, Privacy, and Your Child: What You Need to Know as a Parent.

Everyone knows that you’re not supposed to talk to strangers! It’s simple: If someone you don’t know starts asking questions, you don’t say anything …you leave!

You probably thought that the “no strangers” rule was just for when you are out playing, at school, or shopping. WRONG! You also should avoid the strangers that you can’t see on the Internet. When you speak up in a chat room, post your ideas on a message board, use a Web site that asks you to fill out a survey, or register to play a game, you may be talking to strangers.
