Understanding Online “Friends”

You know your friends in your neighborhood or at school because you see them almost every day. You play with them, sometimes you are in class with them, you see them at the store, the library, or the playground and that is how you get to know them. On the Internet there are places where you sometimes meet people you don’t know. Stick with what is real, only accept online “friends” you know in real life. This video explains why it’s important to stick with what is real — your real friends in the real world — and only accept online friends you know in real life.

This video is designed for kids in grades 4 though 6.
