Today’s youth are the first generation to grow up with the Internet as a part of everyday life. The advances in technology allow young people to reach out to a new universe of knowledge and cultural experiences. They travel through cyberspace frequently, and often alone. But cyberspace also can expose them to harm from Internet predators and identity thieves, and it can tempt them to commit violations of intellectual property rights. Law enforcement and local schools can provide resources to protect the youth and enable them to be good cybercitizens.
