The Web can be a great place to get information - from downloading pictures of your favorite cartoon character to discovering how snow flakes are formed. So, with all of the good stuff the Web has, why is safe surfing so important?
Like real surfing, there are some dangerous waters on the Web. Unfortunately, some Internet users wrongly use the Web to hurt other people or their possessions. And a lot of Internet sites are meant for adults - not kids. It's important to know how to surf so that you get the most out of the sites you want to visit and avoid those you don't.
