Warn your kids about online polls and surveys

There are lots of fun, harmless polls out there, like the one that tells you what kind of poodle you are. But many ask for too much personal information, and could land your kids on spammers’ email lists, or open them up to identity theft. Many adults have a separate email account for when they need to provide an email address to register for something. If your child has a legitimate reason to fill in questionnaires needing an email address, consider helping them set up a second email account of their own.
