Colorado Attorney General John Suthers has joined Democratic Rep. Nancy Todd, the Entertainment Software Association and Web Wise Kids to unveil an Internet safety program to help parents keep their children safe online.

Suthers said Monday that children are naive about dangers on the Internet and some parents are "clueless" about ways to protect them.

Sponsors say the program, called Wired With Wisdom, addresses the dangers associated with social networking, e-mail, cell phones, chat rooms, instant messaging and other technology so adults can educate young people about safe and responsible online practices.
