Internet Safety for the Whole Family

I gave a presentation to parents at a local middle school last night about Internet safety. One of the things I left them with was a collection of useful links and online references for parents, teachers, and students. This seemed like a pretty useful list when I was done with it so I decided to post it here as well. There are lots more good sites of course but I had limited space. I hope people find these useful.
