It has become very difficult to live without these modern conveniences. A1- though they are wonderful, tools they also hold many dangers. As our children immerse them- selves in the technological world they,are bombarded with these dangers. As. par- ents, guardians and teachers we must be aware of these dangers and safe guard our children by setting up safety rules and teaching our children how to make good choices in cyberspace. Making bad choices on the internet can have seri- ous consequences now and in the future These consequences can come as finan- cial, mental, emo- tional and physical burdens This ar- ticle will explain some oE'ili"aangers of the incernet,, their conse- quences and how you can help protect your child. One of the most prevalent dangers on the internet come from things being downloaded to your computer. Some examples are vi- ruses, worms, malware and spyware. These are malicious programs meant to harm your computer, spy on your .activities or steal your personal informa- tion. To protect your computer and yourselves from these mali- cious programs, have up to date virus and spyware protection, use a firewaU, teach your children not to open e-mails from people they don't know and teach them not to download anything to the computer before having you check that it is coming from a trusted site. A second threat is seams which are meant to collect per- sonal information, steal your identity, and even your money. People trying-to seam you will pretend to be your friend, bank, or a legitimate site. Some scammers are very convincing, use scare tactics, or play on your sympathetic side. To protect yourself from seams, be very care- ful of the informa- tion the internet. Set the computer up in a central location and check on your children frequently. On the internet, there are people who pretend to be some- one else in order to lure and hurt other people. Teach your chil- dren not to talk to strangers on the internet and to never give out personal infor- mation such as their full name, location, address, age, or phone number. If a person on the internet does anything that makes them feel scared, hurt, un- comfortable or confused, or asks for personal informa- tion, they should let you know and block or report the person. Most importantly, teach them to never meet in person with someone that they met on the internet. Finally teach your chil- dren to think carefully before you give out on the internet. Don't register with sites you don't trust. Don't open e-mail from people you don't know. Never give out your bank account number, credit card num- ber, pin number or other personal information. Suspicious e-mails may be reported to your e-mail provider or to the site being imi- tated. Third on the internet, chil- dren may be exposed to inappro- priate material such as violence, adult language and pornography. Protect your children by setting up blocks and filters to prevent the material from cormng through and encourage your children to turn off the monitor and get you immediately if something comes up that makes them feel afraid, hurt or confused You can then block or report the site. Finally, make sure you know what your kids are doing while they are on ELECTRICAL CONTRACTING --- CHUCK McGHEE =.-" DAMCO 400 E 10th Street  Lordsurg, NM 88"045 575 590 0346 Lie#17 710 RESIDENTIAL + COMMERCIAL + INDUSTRIAL NMU 8157 AZI ELBROCK WATER SYSTEMS, LLC General Contractors *Pump & Windmill repair & installation *Septic Systems serviced & installed *Metal Building construction *Roofing & Concrete work West Highway 9 Edward Elbrock PO Box 5O 575-548-2429 Animas, NM 88020 Cell 575-538-1812 We now accept Mastercard & Visa QAuUalit.y BoDY & PAINT Insurance Claims Expert Color Match Fiberglass Repair Bung Detailing All Makes, All Models (including motorcycles) .

It is called Walk Two Moons. This week is MAP testing on the computers. We need to get plenty of rest and eat healthy. In computers, we picked a state, and we need tO put detail in to it. We have to know about their state bird, song, and anything we can about that state. Ms. Penny from the Natural Resources Conservation Center talked to us about how to save our earth by saving water and electricity. Mr.O'Loughlin, Ms. Penny, Ms.Rubio and Mr. Ramos came to Southside and talked about conservation. They gave each student a, Arizona Cypress and taught us how to plant it. In social studies we are learning about the Anasazi the Hohokam pople. They are Native Americans. And we are also learning about Santa Fe. Santa Fe is the oldest capital in the United States. Last week our student of the week was Brandon Saenz. This week our student of the week is Ryan Roybal. On Thursday, Mr. Piper from the NM De- partment of Game and Fish will be here to talk to us about fishing. We would like "to thank our Counselor, Mrs. Lucern for being caring, helping us with our problems and for doing projects with us. You are an awesome counselor Mrs. Lucern! And you help us out a lot! sending or posting anything online or by cell phone. Pictures and posts may be sent immedi- ately to hundreds of people and can reappear at anytime. Any- thing posted may be permanent and cause damage to reputations, future opportunities and could're= suit in discipline at home, school. and even result in legal repercus- sions. Teach your children not to send anything that they wouldn't want posted on the front page of the newspaper for all to see. Any- one can get hold of these pictures and texts and can forward them to many people instantly. In conclusion, although the internet and cell phones can make our lives easier and more enjoy- able. the consequences of poor internet and cell phone use can have serious and far reaching consequences. Care must be taken when dealing with these technologies to protect ourselves and our families from these con- sequences. For more information call your child's school counselor. We are here to help.
