A Message from the New York State Attorney General for New York's Parents
The Internet is an immense and valuable resource that unlocks a world of possibilities. Today both adults and children are using the Internet to research a wide array of issues - colleges, health plans, and employment opportunities, among many others. Our kids, however, are also using the Internet as an online playground. They socialize, post pictures and videos, play video games, and share experiences with friends.
Unfortunately, strangers also have access to these conversations, pictures, and videos. When our kids are online, they can be exposed to real dangers - among them, pornography, sexual predators, identity theft, and cyberbullying. As parents, we can help our kids take advantage of the Internet without falling victim to its risks.
This is why I have made the online safety of children a top priority. My office has created educational materials with the Netsmartz Workshop®, a resource of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. This presentation provides vital information that will help you have a conversation with your child about how to safely enjoy the digital world. By working together, we can keep our kids safer.
