A NOTE TO ALL OF OUR CITY PARK ONLINE FRIENDS:
We have created this area for you because we know that the Internet
can be a great place to connect with others who share your situations. However, since we are not face-to-face, certain situations
require using good common sense and safety tips. When utilizing chat rooms, message boards, and pen pals, please keep in
mind the following:
1.) Don't give out your name unless you feel comfortable doing so.
2.) Allow time
for relationships to develop before getting involved--this can relate to talking on the telephone, and especially emotional
involvement. When we feel isolated and alone, we are more vulnerable. Please do not let that cloud common sense.
3.) Never give out any personal information, such as address, phone number, or Social Security information.
If you have children, protect their privacy, too. Only give names and information about children if you feel safe doing
5.) Keep in mind with chatrooms, many are able to trace users, especially in the IRC format. If you do not
want people tracing your ISP number, use your better judgement.
6.) If you decide to meet a friend in public, never
meet alone. Take someone with you, and meet in a very public place.
These tips should help you on your way to online
