Do you supervise your children when they use Internet enabled devices? Are you aware of the dangers that the Internet can pose to children?
In addition to all the pornagraphic material your child could stumble onto or seek out online, sexual extortion is a growing concern. Predators are seeking out unsupervised children to be manipulated and exploited.
How Parental Supervision and Accountability can Help Protect Kids from Sexual Extortion
Did you know that it’s actually the job of certain abominable human beings to hunt for kids online and then trap them into what our friend, Kristen A. Jenson, calls “sextortion?”
If you allow your child the freedom to surf the net, engage in social media, play Internet interactive video games—or all three—without a healthy system of oversight and accountability, you may as well drop them off in the red-light district of any inner-city around the world and hope for the best.
If you don’t think this can happen to your child, you may be living in a fool’s paradise. I see this kind of thing happen virtually every day to otherwise very good families.
