Kids Internet Safety Board Game

From Netsmartz come Clicky Race to the Finish, a roll, move, action, discussion, and question game about children’s online safety. (PDF)

Your child will encounter “Look at Dis Louie”, who sends to kids pictures that they don’t want to see, “Wanta-Know Wally” who asks kids for personal information, “Meet-Me Mack”, who tries to get kids to meet him alone in private locations, and “Potty-Mouth Pete”, who uses rude language.

If you want me, I’ll be home, cowering under the bed.

    Sounds like a start. At the very least, it’s a conversation starter for parents.

    For another fun way for parents to jump-start a discussion about internet and social networking safety, here’s a website that includes an instructional video and a very easy quiz.

    The video is a selection of silly clips supposedly posted to the MySpace pages of the famous auntlee.com puppy and some of her friends. The clips demonstrate mistakes kids can make online.

    The 10 question quiz covers the topics of cyber-bullying, privacy, safety, dangers of spyware and malware, etc.

    The quiz doesn’t really focus on stranger-danger type concerns but rather gently and humorously reminds the reader that it’s possible to hurt people’s feelings, to mislead people who don’t realize you’re joking, to remember that online postings can be seen by anybody and that postings are often impossible to remove once posted.

    I’ve always really enjoyed Netsmartz resources. They seem to be really good materials for kids.
