|Helping Your Child Safely Navigate the Information Superhighway
the parent of an Internet user, what are some things I can do about
How accessible is hate on the Internet to my child?
What are the dangers my child faces when being confronted by racist and anti-Semitic messages?
Is use of the Internet by haters legal?
How can individuals and communities counteract hateful messages online?
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is very concerned about the increase
of anti-Semitic and racist material on the Internet. Children who explore
the Internet, whether visiting Web sites, reading E-mail messages, or
conversing in chat rooms, run the risk of encountering hate propaganda.
Many hate groups specifically target the young, and hateful messages can
deeply influence and affect our children.
ADL's new report on Internet bigotry, Poisoning
the Web: Hatred Online, presents an up-to-date, in-depth look at the
growing presence of hateful groups and individuals on the Internet. ADL
encourages parents to help their children deal with online hate through
discussion and education.
