Learn about and monitor the Web sites that your child visits while on the computer.

For example: To access Facebook.com, you must create an account on the site which is free. Facebook's terms of use state that members must be at least 13 years old with valid email ID’s.
Web sites will shut down perpetrators’
accounts if they know an individual is being harassed.

Scenario 1

Lindsay has just moved to town from Oregon and enrolls in the local middle school. Very pretty, outgoing, and funny, she quickly wins the attention of a number of the school’s football players—much to the humiliation of the school’s cheerleaders. Bonnie, the head cheerleader, is concerned about Lindsay stealing away her boyfriend Johnny, who plays quarterback. With the help of her cheerleader friends, Bonnie decides to create a “We Hate Lindsay” Web site, where girls can post reasons why they hate Lindsay and why they think she should move back to Oregon. Soon, the entire school becomes aware of the site’s Web address, and many others begin to post hurtful sentiments about Lindsay. Desperately wanting to make friends in a new town, Lindsay's crushed and begins to suffer from depression and a lack of desire to do anything aside from crying in bed.

If you were her mom or dad, what would you do? What might the school do to help Lindsay? If you were her best friend, what might you say or do to help?
Scenario 2

A mother is walking by her son Jonathan while he is on the computer and notices that he keeps hiding the screen when she walks by. Upon further observation, the mother sees that Jonathan is making fun of someone else via instant

What should the mother do first? Does the mother need to contact the parents of the other child? Should Jonathan be allowed to use the computer?
Recommendations for Creating a Unique Password

• Use passwords with at least seven characters
• Make a mixture of UPPER and lower case letters, numbers,
and non-alphabetic characters
• Use first letters of an uncommon sentence, song, poem, quote, etc.
• Use word fragments not found in the dictionary (mihtaupyn)
• Use short words separated by characters (dog%door; candy$trip)
• Transliteration: like “vanity license plates” (e.g., “Elite One” becomes “E1te0nE”)
• Lines from a childhood verse or popular song (“Baby you’re a firework, Come on let your colors burst” becomes ByafColycb)
• Phrases from movies (“May the Force be with you” becomes MtFbwu)
• Expressions inspired by the name of a city (“Big lights will inspire you, let’s hear it for New York” becomes BLwiylhifNY)
• Interweave characters in two words: (“Play Date” becomes PateDlay)
How do I set up Google Alerts?

Setting up Google Alerts is a simple process--you don't even have to have a Gmail account to use Google Alerts.

1.Go to http://www.google.com/alerts/ where you'll see this page:

2.Sign in if you have a Gmail account. If you don't have a Gmail account, you can just start filling out the Google Alert form.

3.Enter the search terms you want to track, separated by commas. You can edit this later if you find you have too many or too few terms. If you're not sure what to track, start with your name and your blog's name. You may also want to include keywords related to your brand and your niche.

4.Choose the Type of search you want Google Alerts to create.
News (includes the latest news articles that mention your terms and "appear in the top ten results of your Google News search.")
•Blogs (includes blog articles that mention your terms and "appear in the top ten results of your Google Blog search.")
•Web (includes web pages that mention your terms and "appear in the top twenty results of your Google Web search.")
•Comprehensive (includes results from News, Blogs, and Web, etc. that mention your terms. It's, um, comprehensive.)
•Video (includes videos that mention your terms and "appear in the top ten results of your Google Video search.")
•Groups (includes posts that mention your search terms and "appear in the top fifty results of your Google Groups search.")

5.Choose how often you'd like to receive your Google Alerts. I like to receive mine once a day simply because I'm trying to cut down on the time I spend checking e-mail. However, if you're tracking a timely project or news story, you may want to choose as-it-happens. Likewise, if you're just keeping tabs on something that mildly interests you, but isn't critical, you can choose once a week.

6.Choose where you'd like the Google Alerts delivered. If you have a Gmail account, you can receive them via gmail. If you'd rather, you can receive them via RSS or another e-mail account.

7.Click the Create Alert button and finish.
