Internet Safety for Children

With the internet being such a vast tool today, it's easy for kids to get into mischief there-- whether they know it or not. Attorney General Tom Corbett's office presented an internet safety program at the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh that over 100 local school children attended. Child Watch of Pittsburgh Executive Director Amy Raslevich said the attorney general listed three ways for kids to be safe, including: not posting information like a full name and address with pictures, staying away from profiling Web sites such as and chatrooms, and telling a parent or adult if they find something that looks suspicious.

Parents can also help by closely monitoring their children when they use the internet and tell them what is appropriate and what isn't.
