Have family rules about how the internet will be used at home and be clear about what information to share online.
Discuss rules about making and meeting friends.
Make sure you know what your children are doing online much like you would in "real" life and use parental controls (on computers, mobile phones and games consoles) to help you. Remember that these cannot always be 100% effective.
Make sure that your children are aware that people or websites can lie online.
Make sure your child understands that online actions can have offline consequences.
