Sexual Predators Seek Youth Online
Don't get caught up in being "cool" and thinking you "have" to have all the latest apps and that you have to be part of every social networking site! If you or your child is not of a safe age, ready to make responsible choices, do NOT go online unsupervised. The sexual predators are counting on there being young, inexperienced people online for them to prey on.
It's serious business...and you or your loved one could get hurt...1 in 25 youth received an online solicitation where solicitors tried to make an offline connection...translation...they found these young people and tried to/and sometimes succeeded, in hurting them. It's just not worth it!
