"Stranger danger" abounds for kids on the Internet
"Danger is just a click away," says this article from a South Bend, Indiana television station. "A sexual predator
can go anywhere in cyberspace to find your children." According to this news source, the number of sexual predators on
the Internet who want to get your children is on the rise. And the number of children using the Internet, and chat
rooms, is close to 77 million. One in five children who go into chat rooms will come into contact with "stranger
danger" says one investigator.
Law enforcement officials are warning parents to be on their guard, by checking out the sites your kids are surfing, know who they are chatting with, and talk with your kid about Internet safety. "Also, remember the computer is no longer a safe babysitter for children."
