Some online games also allow users to interact with other players from different parts of the world. Through these games, players can communicate with each other in a manner similar to being in a chat room. It is, therefore, necessary for parents to not only monitor their child’s game play, but to also be aware of who their child interacts with during play.  Use filters to block your child’s access to sites that are potentially inappropriate. (Some Internet providers offer filters at no extra charge to their customers.) Of course, filters are not 100 percent effective - today’s computer savvy children can often find ways around filters. Supervision and monitoring are still the best safe- guards.  Discuss the dangers of the Internet, and make sure that your child understands and follows these Internet rules: Never share your computer password with anyone, not even your friends. Never give out personal information, such as your name, address, phone number, school, or birthday. Never agree to meet someone you’ve met online. Never use offensive language, threaten someone online, or post cruel or untrue information. For information on Internet safety, go to www.socialsafety.org or www.wiredsafety.org
