Our general house rules
We will always treat people nicely online.
We will think about the footprint we leave online with our comments, pictures and videos, and control what others see about us to leave a good impression. We will ask ourselves: What would grandma, grandpa or a favourite teacher think if he or she saw this?
We will never write rude or hurtful messages. If we are upset or angry with someone, we will talk to them in person.
We will work with an adult we trust to learn how to post things online, and only post things that we are okay with anybody seeing.
We will tell an adult if someone is being mean to us online.
We will tell an adult if we are worried about something we see online.
We will remember that things we see on the Internet aren’t always true.
If we don’t know someone in person, we won’t communicate with him or her online without asking our parents, or an adult we trust, first.
We won’t tell people where we are when we’re online.
We will make our passwords hard to guess and we will not share our passwords. It is important to know that some people do go into other people’s accounts and try to cause trouble.
We will protect our personal information and the personal information of others because personal information is valuable.
We will ask an adult we trust for help if we make a privacy mistake, like posting something we didn’t mean to.
We will set a good example of safe, wise and responsible Internet use for everyone around us. This goes for adults too! Add your own House rule
