  • Keep the computer in a common area where you can monitor your computer use
  • Take your child seriously if she reports an exchange that made her feel uncomfortable
  • Forward copies of obscene or threatening messages you or your child receives to your ISP
  • Call the NCMEC at (800) 843-5678 if you are aware of the transmission, use, or viewing of child pornography online
  • Contact your local law enforcement agency or the FBI if your child has received child pornography via the Internet.
