How to Protect Your Children From Child Abuse: A Parent's Guide

posted Oct 4, 2017, 6:03 AM by Cub Scouts Pack 396
In order for a scout (Grades 1-3) to earn the Cyber Chip Award, he must complete the exercises in the document "How to Protect Your Children From Child Abuse: A Parent's Guide". This must be completed with the parent, guardian, or other caring adult. A copy of this document (PDF format) is attached to this post.

*If your family does not have Internet access at home AND you do not have ready Internet access at school or another public place or via a mobile device, the Cyber Chip portion of this requirement may be waived by your parent or guardian.

Note: All Cyber Chips will expire annually. Each Scout will need to "recharge" the chip by going back to the Netsmartz Recharge area. This space will hold new information, news, and a place for the Scout to recommit to net safety and netiquette. Then, with the unit leader, the Scout can add the new date to the Cyber Chip card or certificate.

Read, commit to, and sign the Level I Internet Safety Pledge. (BSA Cyber Chip blue card)
Watch the video "Bad Netiquette Stinks." (
Play the Router's Birthday Surprise Interactive Adventure, and print the completion certificate to give to your den leader. (
Show and tell your family, den leader, den, or pack what you have learned. Cyber Chip:
