(PRWEB) August 1, 2006 -- The Polly Klaas® Foundation, www.pollyklaas.org, today announced that Wired With Wisdom, an interactive Internet safety program for parents created by Web Wise Kids, www.webwisekids.com, will be included in their soon-to-be-released free Internet Safety Kit.

Wired With Wisdom adds an important interactive dimension to our Internet Safety Kit and provides parents with a wonderful tool to help them understand the challenges and risks their children may face online When parents obtain the free Internet Safety Kit, they will be offered a free download of Wired with Wisdom ($19.95 value). Wired with Wisdom grew out of the real need many parents express to catch up with their technologically sophisticated children. In this swift-moving online age, parents often feel overwhelmed or under-qualified to address children’s Internet habits.

Together, the Internet Safety Kit and Wired With Wisdom provide busy parents practical, workable solutions to help manage their family's Internet safety, including email, personal websites, chat rooms, social networking and instant messaging as well as recognizing and avoiding online predators.

Parents and caregivers can obtain the Internet Safety Kit at http://ga0.org/campaign/internet_safety_kit. An August 1, 2006 publication is planned.

The Internet Safety Kit is a companion to the Foundation’s popular and highly respected abduction prevention Child Safety Kit, http://ga0.org/campaign/PKF_website_child_safety_kit.

"Wired With Wisdom adds an important interactive dimension to our Internet Safety Kit and provides parents with a wonderful tool to help them understand the challenges and risks their children may face online," said Robert De Leo, Executive Director of the Polly Klaas® Foundation. "We greatly appreciate the generosity of Web Wise Kids. It is gratifying to partner with an organization whose work is so effective in keeping children safe."

"In 2002, the Polly Klaas® Foundation was instrumental in helping us introduce our first Internet safety program, the Missing Game, to children in the United States," said Monique Nelson, Executive Vice President of Web Wise Kids. "Today more than a million 11- to 14-year-olds have been trained in Internet safety through the Missing Game. We’re very proud to be able to join forces once again with the Polly Klaas® Foundation to enhance the extraordinary work they do to help protect children."
