Do NOT respond to any messages that are mean or in any way make you feel uncomfortable. Instead, tell your parents right away so they can contact the online service.

Talk with your parents so that you can set up rules for going online. Decide upon the time of day you can be online, the length of time you can be online, and appropriate areas for me to visit. Do NOT access other areas or break these rules without their permission.
