  • Report anything you feel is suspicious to your parent or guardian. Let them determine if it should be reported to the authorities.

  • W.
  • Follow the guidelines your parent or guardian has set for you. Remember, they've set these guidelines because they care.
  • X.
  • Encourage your parent or guardian to use blocking software to make surfing the web safer for you.
  • Y.
  • Trust your instincts. If it feels wrong then it probably is.
