"We're calling it The PACT, Parents and Children Together is the acronym and it's the PACT to stop violence on America Online and on aol.com on the web."
AOL VP Regina Lewis. There are online pledges for teens, younger children and their parents..
"In the kids' section it's things like, if I see or hear other kids talking about hurting people or doing things that could harm others, I will let an adult know as soon as I can." The PACT tells kids violence is real and has permanent consequences. Parents can pledge to spend more time with thier children, talking to them, listening, getting involved with their schools. And if they have guns, to make sure they are out of reach. Tens of thousands have signed already, including many celebrities the kids will recognize. Again, you can find it on AOL with the key words The PACT. On the web, you can find it at aol.com.
