Golden Rule #1 - Always compare a few sources
Do not stop with the first search result. Continue to the second, and third. See if they say similar things. One will be able to be more sure whether some information can be trusted.
Golden Rule #2 – Always check their “proof”
Even if someone quotes from a source like Straits Times, BBC, New York Times, it is always good to search further whether that has really been reported. Sometimes webpages use these “names” but the information may be inaccurate.
Golden Rule #3 – There are always different sides to a story
No matter how “real” or “true” a webpage may seem, remember there are always different ways to look at it.
Parents can spend time to read with their children, and help them to see the different view points. The more we show them the way, the more they become aware of other ways to look at things.
