I KEEP SAFE my personal informationall of it! I never give my real name, address, phone number, the name of my school, or a picture of myself to anyone online. 56% of teens receive requests for personal information; 12% of tweens (8-12) (Polly Klaas Foundation, 2006) 27% of 13-17 year olds have talked with an online stranger about sex (ibid) Children have a different view of what constitutes personal information 3 Keeps for Kids:
I KEEP AWAY from Internet strangersno matter what they tell me, because I have no way of knowing who they really are. I dont talk with them online, and I never meet them face-to-face. 71% of teens reported receiving messages online from someone they dont know (National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, 2006) 14% of 13-17 year olds have actually met face-to-face with an Internet stranger. 16% of youth discovered that someone online was an adult pretending to be much younger. 4% reported that online solicitors ask them to send a nude or sexually explicit photo of themselves (ibid) 3 Keeps for Kids:
I KEEP TELLING my parents about everything I see on the InternetI always tell them or a trusted adult when something makes me uncomfortable Kids dont tell because they think they will get in trouble Kids dont tell because they are threatened Kids dont tell because they are embarrassed Kids dont tell because they think it is their fault Kids dont tell because they dont feel they have anyone they can tell 3 Keeps for Kids:
