Internet safety, much like personal safety, draws from three principles. We want to make sure that we teach our kids to keep private information offline. We want to teach them not to draw unwanted attention, and never cultivate a relationship with someone they don't know. Personal information and private information are very different beasts. Personal information is things like their name, address, and phone number. All of this information can be accessed online. Private information is different. That is how we are feeling and the things that we are doing. We need to teach our children that the things that are private to us, need to be kept offline.
