What are some warning signs that my children may be involved in something they shouldn't be while on the Internet (i.e. chatting with a stranger, downloading explicit material, etc.)?

 

  • Online late at night
  • Excessive use of the Internet
  • Closing computer applications when a parent/guardian/adult walks into the room
  • Downloaded files with the suffix .jpg, .gif; .bmp, .tif, .pcx (These indicate images or pictures)
  • Phone calls or mail from stranger
