We're proud here at OUPD to have been one of the pioneers in talking "online" about Internet safety issues. Back in early 1995, when we were first setting up this site, there were almost no articles on the Internet concerning "Internet Safety" and even less regarding kids and the Internet. In spring of '95 a search engine inquiry might have turned up two or three pages, such as Stephen R. Savitzky's excellent page.

Nowadays there is a wealth of online information concerning Internet pitfalls, including both information adults (romance, privacy, money scams, and other issues) and issues relating to teens and even younger children who are now accessing the Internet.

The first line of defense regarding Internet safety for "kids" is awareness by parents and other "educators".

We hope the list of resources, above, will help parents and other educators the basics of "safe surfing" on the Internet.
