A Threat to Our Children
In years past, a child left alone in their room was deemed by parents to be safe. However, today many parents do not have that assurance. If your child has a computer in their room and internet access, it is easy for your child to fall victim to a predator.
A popular activity for many young people is to create personal profiles and post them on social-networking or blog sites. Do you know if your child does this? Some young children or teens may provide too much information in their profiles. Remind your children to never give out personal information, such as name, home address, or telephone number to anyone online whom they do not know. 
Another safety tip is regularly update your security software to protect your family from scammers and hackers. Using software security that automatically updates keeps your technology current and greatly decreases the chance of picking up bad programs or malware. 
Perhaps the greatest security you can provide is to monitor your child’s activities on the computer. First, talk to your children regularly about what they are doing on the computer.  Also, explore various parental controls and consider what options may work best for you. 
On average, a child between 8 and 18 spends approximately 7 ½ hours per day on the computer. The dangers for our children are real. If you are concerned and would like some help, go to the Wired Safety Group website for some assistance. The volunteers that run the site are experts from all walks of life. This site has information that applies to all ages and discusses how to provide safety for your family. It was founded by Mrs. Parry Aftab who is a cyberspace attorney. In addition, you can also read the booklet, “Stop. Think. Connect,” put out by the Department of Homeland Security to help parents keep their child safe. May we work together to keep our children safe.
