If you are concerned about the safety of your child online, you are not alone. There are millions of kids that use the internet as a way to communicate. And all of these kids have parents that are worried about predators that may be lurking online. The best way to avoid these predators, and keep your child safe, is by giving them tips that they can follow when talking to other people online. Some tips that you can give your kids are as follows:

1) Never give out contact information to anybody. Tell your kids that even if they think they know somebody, that they should not share contact information. If your kids follow this tip, you will be able to cut back on a lot of the worries that are going through your mind.

2) Make sure that your kids know that they should tell you about any problems that they are having. If your kids can talk to you about a person that is bothering them, you will be able to take the appropriate steps needed to find a solution. It is when your kids keep secrets that you will end up having problems. Make sure that you keep an open mind, and you will have no problems at all.

3) In person meetings are a definite no no.   Let your kids know straight from the start that they are not to set up in person meetings with anybody that they have been conversing with online. Most predators live for the day that they can come across a kid that will sneak out of their home to see them. Let your kids know that in person meetings are extremely dangerous.
