Kids,

If you were able to read every single book in the public library,
you would know a lot more than you do now. But even then,
you’d have more questions than answers.

The greatest thinkers have been searching for knowledge
and truth since the beginnings of civilization. Today you have
an advantage like none before. That advantage is in front of you
right now. It is this very computer, and Your Internet.

We keep saying it is Your Internet, because it is up to you
to make the most of each and every moment you spend
in cyberspace. There are many factors that will determine
your success or failure in life. You can help yourself, in life,
and on the Web simply by doing the best you can. Develop
the ability to recognize what is worthwhile and what is not
in relation to your goals.

Because it really is Computer Science, use the Internet to
find the answers to the questions that will help you in life.
Your goals, of course, are up to you. And you will achieve,
if you work hard, be a responsible cybercitizen, and stay
true to your dreams.

Your family, community, country, and even the earth itself
needs your help, if progress is to continue. Your Internet can make a big and important difference,
for the good of all.

Adults,

Technologically, we are in the most progressive time in history.
It is vital to convey to kids
the unlimited opportunities, and the dangers, that are found on the Internet.

Effective usage of the Worldwide Web depends on the skill level
of the individual user. What is most significant is for kids and adults to take full responsibility for their actions
as they explore, search and travel through cyberspace.

By recognizing that it is Your Internet to respect and protect,
in effect, each of us becomes a real-life ‘Super Cyber Hero‘.

I may travel for fun and games – yet – I spend time wisely.

TM & © 2000 – 2015 CyberSpacers, Inc. All rights reserved.

 



Kids,

Computers provide us a virtual unlimited arena for various activities that include studying, working, exploration, relaxing, playing games and having fun. Unfortunately, there are those who think of the Internet only as an amusement park with limitless new attractions,
just for kicks. The Web is awesome, exciting, and like a real park –
it’s easy to lose track of time, and get lost there.

You know how to navigate the Internet. You are only a ‘click’ away from anywhere and anything you want. Fortunately, you’re a lot smarter than some ‘spacers, you realize the Web’s not just a fun zone. You have the world’s biggest and best electronic library in your room! Because there is a time for work – and a time for play – you take
care of your school assignment first.

The magic of computers is that you can work wonders with them.
Just like an Aladdin’s Lamp, you’re the (Web) master here. The best trick of any is to use your far-reaching powers to accomplish as much
as possible.

The Web is not all fun and games. However it can be truly enchanting when you use it to Ace that test, or reach that game’s highest level. It’s up to you to spend your cyber-time wisely. Whether or not it’s
your own computer, it is – Your Internet.

 

Return to Oath



Adults,

The world existed long before there was an Internet. Remind your kids how fortunate they are to have so much information so easily accessible to them. Growing up in the Age of Computers presents
both opportunities and risks for young and naive users. It is our
task to teach the value of putting time on the Internet to as good
a use as skills allow.

Today’s children and teens face challenges of communication and technology unknown to any other age in the history of mankind.
Parents, teachers, all responsible adults must address those issues
and specific needs young people ultimately face growing up online.

Youngsters are natural achievers, it’s the major part of maturing
into successful, well-adjusted adults. Yet, kids cannot attain full potential without sound guidance, and proper example. Parents
should use the computer as a family activity. Explore together,
play together, and together establish the value of spending
cyber-time as wisely as you spend the days of your life.

For Adults

I do not share personal information with strangers.

     Click here to go FORWARD

 

TM & © 2000 – 2015 CyberSpacers, Inc. All rights reserved.

 



Kids,

Many Web sites ask you to enter information about yourself.
Don’t do it, even if you know the site, without adult permission.
Some sites promise free stuff, or access to restricted areas in exchange for personal, private details about you or your family.

Think about this logically. If a stranger called you on the phone,
or asked you on the street, would you give them your address?
Of course not! Sharing personal info on the Web is no different.

Any time a Web site, or someone in a chat room asks you for information that would allow them to contact you off-line –
don’t do it unless your parent or teacher determines it is safe.
Even if it’s to enter a game, contest or get stuff for free!

To protect yourself, you should only answer emails and
instant ‘buddy’ messages from people or addresses you know.
If you get an email or message that is weird, sick or just makes
you feel uncomfortable – do not respond. Instead, show it to
your parent, teacher or other trusted adult.

Always get an adult’s OK before sharing any private info –
with this one exception. If a Web site asks for your school’s
or folks’ email address in order to ask them for permission
on your behalf – always provide that information correctly.

 

Return to Oath



Adults,

The worst thing imaginable is a child turning up missing, molested,
or even worse, because of a Web contact. Most of these kinds of situations occur, not as a result of strangers breaking into homes
or stalking schools, and kidnapping kids. More often than not, youngsters leave home voluntarily, after an online ‘meeting’ and
being lured away.

The Web’s worst nightmare can only happen if your child gives
private info to a perverted person. Usually, teens are targeted, especially those who are vulnerable and exercise poor judgment.
Luring is against the law. The best protection is to be cautious.
But if your child is approached online by someone you perceive to
be a threat to their physical safety, contact us, or law enforcement.

For added security, ask us about installing a filter that restricts your child from transmitting personal info such as address and phone #.

I hope to make friends — but I am cautious.

     Click here to go FORWARD

 

TM & © 2000 – 2015 CyberSpacers, Inc. All rights reserved.

 



Kids,

Chat rooms can be a great way to ‘meet’ new friends. However,
you can’t take things at face value, especially when you can’t see someone’s face. Being cautious when talking to people you really don’t know is not only a good idea, it is the only way to protect yourself from creeps and crazies.

While honesty may be your policy, not everyone plays by that rule.
In fact, there are those who never play fair, and make up whatever
they think you want to hear in order to gain your confidence –
and intrude into your life.

Chat rooms are the online equivalent of having pen pals. The
difference is that pen-pal friendships develop slowly over time.
Chats are a very popular activity for cyberspacers of all ages.
Chats are also places where, kids in particular, find trouble
because people are not always who or what they claim to be.
These rooms are ‘public places’ and the true identity and
intent of someone in a chat area is difficult to determine.
Be wary of people who try to gain your trust by being
too friendly and too helpful, too quickly.

No matter how many times you chat with someone, even if
you think you know and can trust them – NEVER but NEVER
arrange to meet anyone in person unless your parents agree.
Even then, your parent or another adult should go with you –
and it’s best to meet in an open, public place.

Return to Oath



Adults,

Whether on or off the Internet: ‘Do you know where your kids are?’
It is just as important to know the chat rooms and Web sites your child frequents,
as any other ‘real-life’ place they may visit. You don’t want them
in the ‘seedy side’ of town, nor on the ‘seedy side’ of the Web.

There are ways you can help kids avoid problems in chat rooms.
Make certain the chat is maintained and supervised by reputable people. Only allow them into rooms run by an accredited company
or organization that carefully monitors activities. Instruct your child
to be skeptical of strangers, and never divulge personal information.
In-person meetings with someone they met in a chat room must be strictly forbidden without first checking with you. And even then,
you should accompany them to a public meeting place.

Ask us about software and monitoring tools that can help you
teach your kids appropriate chat room and Internet behavior.

I respect others — as I expect others to respect me.

TM & © 2000 – 2015 CyberSpacers, Inc. All rights reserved.

 



Kids,

This is all about the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you
would have them do unto you.”
If you broke into someone’s
home, you may or may not get caught. But for most people,
it is not fear of being caught and punished that keeps them
from breaking the law. Simply, it is having respect for others,
and, respect for ourselves that keeps us from violating the rules.

Did you know it is a federal crime to steal someone else’s mail?
Even if it were not a crime – you still don’t raid your neighbor’s
mail box – because it is wrong. And you would not expect them
to raid yours for the same reason.

That sense of mutual respect applies directly to the Internet.
Other people using the Worldwide Web deserve their privacy,
just as you deserve yours. You don’t open your neighbor’s mail,
so why even try to open their email?

Even if you could, you don’t break into homes or businesses
to steal or vandalize – because you’re not a criminal. Likewise,
although you may have the technical know-how, you don’t break
into Web sites – because you know hacking is wrong. If you
know someone who hacks, or thinks it’s a kind of game, tell them
hacking is a cyber-crime and cyber criminals go to jail. Or, tell us!

 

Return to Oath



Adults,

A recent poll of nearly 50,000 elementary and middle school students revealed that more than 48% of kids do not consider hacking a crime.
Because we are in a horse race with youngsters who have mature computer skills and teenage ethics, we are here to educate kids on
the dangers and consequences of cyber-crime.

Cyberspacers.com is designed to establish a sense of responsibility
via pride in belonging to the Defenders Online Team. The “club”
helps kids develop ethical and socially conscious online behavior.
We strongly believe in our motto:
Respect & Protect Your Internet.”

Here kids will find features with stars and role models to whom
they can relate. Our contests reward outstanding cyber achievers. Adventures of the ‘Super Cyber Team’, and heroes, appearing soon
in schools, will work to stem the tide of cyber criminal idolization.
If you’re a parent, teacher or a concerned adult, you can help.
Have your cyberspacers – Take the Oath – and – Join the Team!

Kids,

Exploring the Internet is fun. Yet, like the driver of a car,
you must be careful on the Information Super-Highway –
watch out for bumps in the road! Know where you want
to go, stick to it, and you’ll arrive safely at your destination.
Visiting Web sites that offer hateful, sexual, violent, immoral
or other poor subject matter is unwise and may be dangerous.
These places often track your computer, which enables them
to obtain personal information that is none of their business.

Do you wonder why these places exist? The answer is simple.
The Internet is worldwide, and just as in the rest of the world,
you’ll find all kinds of people and ideas there, both good and bad.
Think about it. In your day-to-day life would you get into a car
with a stranger, or hang out with criminals, crooks & gangsters?
If you said ‘no’ – why take unnecessary chances on the Internet?

 

Return to Oath



Adults,

Many of today’s computer-savvy youngsters know more about
the Internet than grown-ups. If that’s your situation, keep open
a line of communication with them, you might learn something.
Ask them where they go online and what they enjoy doing there.
Ask, and get answers about what your child thinks is good and
bad regarding their experiences in cyberspace.

There is not yet a perfect way, no cure-all ‘fool-proof’ solution
to protect/shield kids from all of the dangers found on the Web.
However, a first step is to study your ISP’s online safety tips.
Utilize applicable security options, settings and filters. Activate
controls that block ‘Adult Only’ material. Use kids’ Web browsers. Need more? Learn about software that can make a difference.

Contact us for info on technologies that fit your specific needs,
and the various benefits and risks to kids using the Internet.
The right safety solution varies from family to family, grade level,
and particularly depends on the age and ability of the youngster.

The ‘honor system’ is best, especially if a child has lone access to
the Web, but, making right judgment calls is essential in avoiding trouble. Technology can help, and so can we if you – Click Here.

On my honor, I promise to do my best
along the Information Super-Highway.

TM & © 2000 – 2015 CyberSpacers, Inc. All rights reserved.

 



Kids,

Each time you use Your Internet, your chair becomes a pilot’s seat –
and you are at the controls of a powerful Super Cyberspace-Craft.
But all that power comes with responsibility. Wherever you go,
whatever you do while flying through the Worldwide Web –
it is your ability to make the right decisions that determines
if you accomplish your mission, or fail.

Doing your best ‘for the good of cyberspace’ means doing
the best for yourself, because, after all – it is Your Internet.
Proper behavior is the same whether or not you’re on the Net.
Know right from wrong, and if you’re not sure, ask your teacher,
or parent. Set your life’s goals as high as you possibly can –
then keep reaching for your dreams with the magic touch
that is at your fingertips.

Return to Oath



Adults,

There is no such thing as ‘cyber ethics’. Ethical behavior,
the ability to make right decisions, is the same no matter
what the environment. A youngster who just says ‘no’
to illegal drugs offered by peers, at school or on the street,
for example, is not likely to go searching for them on the Web.

Family values, and the Internet, are based on communication.
Communicating family values has never been more important.
Parents need to supervise kids as they begin to explore the Web.
Trust is achieved, earned by accomplishment.

In school, students learn to use computers appropriately.
Community programs and campaigns educate cyberspacers
about Internet safety, ethics, and of the legal do’s and don’ts.
Still, moral training begins at home. Whether off-line or online,
teach kids early to take full responsibility for their own behavior,
and to expect the consequences for the decisions they make.
