Social Media Is Not Always Safe. Games And Apps Rated For Younger Audiences Are Not Always Utilized In A Manner Suited To The Age Of The Intended Users. People Don’t Always Play By The Rules. Predators Are Using Social Media To Groom Our Children. Chatrooms, Messaging, Stalking – There Is No Apparent End To What Evil Lurks Inside Seemingly “Safe” Circles.

  • Educate Your Children On Their Age-Appropriate Participation And Use Of The Internet, Apps And Games.
  • Keep An Eye On Their Content, Pages Visited, Chat Room, Texts Etc.
  • Keep Communication Open So Your Child Trusts You And Your Wisdom.
  • Know their usernames, passwords and friends.
  • Use the parental controls.
  • Don’t Be Paranoid, Be Vigilant.
