For internet saftey I swear by MSNBC’s “To Catch A Predator” web site. It has so much on internet saftey and what parents can do with kids.

Call the non-emergency number to your local police department. They can probably help you, or put you in touch with someone that can.

Laura asks…

Internet safety for kids?

What has the government done to prevent cases where the internet has been used inappropriately?

ex. cyber-bullying among children
i’m doing a project for civics on internet safety, and i must write a letter stating two opinions/views and i must say what the government has already done.
i know that there has been a federal law made, but is there anything else?
i HAVE done tons of research, just so you know.
i’m not trying to get you to do it all for me, i’m just trying to see if anyone knows anything that i might not have come across yet.

richmama answers:

Hey MegiZZle…AHAHAHAHAHA! It’s that Jambi thing again. =P
Okay, well, currently, I don’t think the government has done anything specific to prevent cases where the Internet has been used inappropriately, but, you could say that there are police things that go into chat rooms and act like a predator to find and arrest other predators. And the police force is related to the government. I guess. I don’t think the governement has done much because it’s not a public service thing. It’s not something put out and issued by the authorities and so…yeah…why would they take the initiative to start a safety surveillence thing? I don’t know. There wouldn’t really be anything they CAN do to stop cyber bullying, other than to post up ads in the media, portraying children being bullied (like those ones on TV). And that’s just getting the message out. I don’t know, MegiZZle, but yeahh…good luck on that civics thing. Sounds like a drag.
