A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single website or collection of sites.

Below Are Some Internet Safety Tips For Kids

We strongly encourage all parents to go online with their kids. I think you will find these tips helpful in making your child's online experience safer and more pleasant:


  • Teach kids never to give personal information, unless supervised by a parent or responsible adult. Personal information includes the child's photo, name, age, gender, address, phone number, school, sports clubs and such.


  • Know the websites your kids are visiting and which sites are appropriate. If the site doesn't meet with your approval, do not be afraid to say NO to your child. Your child may not like it, but he or she will be safe.


  • Never permit kids or teens to access the Internet behind locked doors. Always monitor your childs online activities. You may trust your kids, but you cannot trust the unscrupulous people and marketers they encounter online who will use devious methods to decieve them.


  • Look for a websites Privacy Policy and/or Child Privacy Policy and read it carefully. Know how your childs information is treated.


  • Be sure to check out this very informative Canadian, bilingual education program in Internet safety, Be Web Aware. It is designed to raise parent's awareness and to provide practical Internet safety tips for kids and information to enable kids to become Web savvy.


Be Web Aware provides Internet safety tips by age group for children and teens, from 2 to 17 years of age. It is a terrific online resource to help street proof kids for the internet.

Adults will find it useful as well.
