You are sitting
at home watching television. Your child is on
the internet. You feel comfortable knowing that
your child is talking to a friend, doing schoolwork,
or playing a video game. Ask yourself, are they?
Who are their online friends? Have you met them
in person? Do they attend the same school? Are
you sure you know what your child is doing while
you are not there to watch them?
The information highway has left a few potholes,
called online predators. These sycophants use
chat rooms, message boards, and instant messaging
to lure your child. Sometimes children use these
ways of communication to divulge their sorrows
and share their fears. Online predators use
this to their advantage and may bait children
to gain their trust with sympathy. They give
attention, kindness, affection, and sometimes
gifts to gain control over your child. Some
use the child’s weakened inhibitions by exposing
them to sexual content.
The majority of children will not be exposed
to this sickening pursuit of these perverted
people. We all hear the stories on the news,
see the articles in the paper, and may even
know of someone it has happened to. All young
people are potentially at risk, but a few certain
types may be more vulnerable to an online predator.
Young people who are more at risk!
- Feel alone or neglected
- New to online chats or other online activities
- Ones who strive to feel more adult
- Ones who are on the computer too much
- Isolated from their peer group
Your Children "Avoid Strangers"
We all hear the horrors of sexual attacks,
murder, kidnapping, etc. on the news because
of online predators. You look at the parents
and hope you never have to feel their loss or
suffering. Online predators are only as smart
as you and your child let them be. Children
feel they are aware of whom they are talking
to, but they are not. You the parent have to
be the one who is aware. Discuss who they talk
to and always talk to them about the dangers
of talking to strangers.
With this age of technology web sites have
made changes to their rules and regulations
in an effort to prevent these tragedies. Creators
of operating software have set up parental controls
and filters to block children from exploring
where they shouldn’t. Even with all of these
advancements, these dangers still exist. That
is why we asked, “Are you sure you know what
your child is doing while you are not there
to watch them?” Can you honestly answer that?
