A New Online Safety Group

TEXT SIZE: A A A
A recent story in the Palo Alto Daily News by Larry Magid reported the founding of a new Family Online Safety Institute to promote research and discussion about how to keep kids safe online. There is also a new Web site at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children where parents can submit questions about Internet safety and computers that are answered by email by real-life experts.

If you have information about an Internet-related crime against a child - including child pornography - report it to the Cybertipline or call 1-800-843-5687.
