Child Safety

The NetSmartz Workshop is an interactive, educational safety resource from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and Boys & Girls Clubs of America. This resource is designed for children aged 5 to 17, parents, guardians, educators, and law enforcement, and uses age-appropriate, 3-D activities to teach children how to stay safer on the Internet.

The NetSmartz Workshop teaches children three basic rules for online safety.

  • I will tell an adult I trust if anything makes me feel scared, uncomfortable, or confused.
  • I will ask my parents or guardian before sharing my personal information.
  • I won't meet in person with anyone I have first "met" online.

Explore topics such as cyberbullying and online solicitation with their free collection of online videos. Through animation and real-life stories, NetSmartz can help.
