Default Attention Parents: Please Read

ATTENTION PARENTS: PLEASE READ
I was just reading another thread that was about NOT posting ANY personal info.
It concerns me that so many kids are wanting to give out little tidbits about themselves. A few kids are asking why they can't give out their month of birth or their age.
I think it would be a good idea for all of us parents to have ANOTHER talk with our kids about
Internet Safety

It's amazing how predators do their work. I don't want to scare anyone or be negative. but the fact is that many child predators will look for those little tidbits of info. They will then try to befriend our kids through personal messages. They sometimes pretend to be the same age or in the same grade. They can abbreviate and talk with kids in their "own" language and then they end up finding out more information than you ever want to know.
Remind your kids to tell you if ANYONE starts messaging them regularly and wants to talk about personal stuff. They should only be talking about Webkinz herd on WI.

Anyone ever see their kids typing POS (
Parent over shoulder)?
Lets all be proactive and remind our kids how to chat safe on these forums and others aswell.
Thanks
p.s.- my first thread ever- hope i did it right?

Great Idea. It is quite amazing how predators work, I watched a show about how people on myspace can be tracked so easily, and I am sure the same applies here. Thanks you so much for you concern! Rep. points to you!

I am sure a bunch of parents will, and wether they tell you or not, they will appreciate it very much.

I am a parent and my husband is in law enforcement. Trust me all of you that want to give out info it is NOT safe. Please make sure that your friends do not give out any personal info about themselves or you as well. Unfortunately I know one to many stories about this subject and none of them are happy. Please all of you be very very careful about who you talk to anywhere on the internet.

There was a terrible story about a young girl in the newspaper. She was on a youth forum. She only mentioned which location of a Mc Donald's she worked and this man figured her out he followed her to where she lived. When she was alone- he broke into her house. The rest is too terrible to disclose...
Please kids
It can happen to you.
Don't think it's harmless to give any little details
