Internet rules for kids.

Youths shouldn't be limited in using computers, but rather learn responsible habits so they don't fall into the hands of someone who wants to do harm.

The Technology Student Association in West Virginia warns youths to be highly protective of their personal data when they correspond with strangers over the Internet. According to a survey, most TSA students know that anonymity on the Internet cannot be ensured, seven out of 10 students know that online communications are traceable, and six in 10 know that chatting with strangers online can be risky.
