Is IM safe for my child?

Instant messaging (IM) can be great fun but if you have safety concerns social networking/instant messaging tools can be filtered; the filter works by checking certain words or phrases. However, you can tell your child never to respond to an Instant Message from someone they don’t know. Advise them to stay in the age limited areas on the sites that you have allowed them to access. Try to keep an eye on their online activity.
