Adult chatrooms massachusetts
This recently happened to a Massachusetts 13-year-old who thought she was communicating with a teenager. The man had sent her the cellphone; her mom didn't know she had one. In both situations, these predators found their victim on Facebook. E-mentor kids online especially when they have a computer in their bedroom.
Screen Retriever enables parents to monitor children's computer activity live where ever the child's computer is located in the home including who your child is communicating with using their webcam. Set limits and ground rules about what your child is allowed to do online, sites they visit, information they post, who their friends are on social networking sites, who they are chatting with.
Predators are master manipulaters and provide the online "pretend" support these kids are looking for to build trust and to verify the child's feelings.
Your teen comes home from school and goes up to his/her bedroom, closes the door and goes online. The good news is that your child actually becoming the victim of an online predator is unlikely.Predators aren't scary looking and don't stand out.They look like you or me or anyone down the street.Go over the Screen Retriever tips before they are allowed on the computer. Learn the language your kids use on the computer and cellphone, like A/S/L or GNOC. When your child comes to you with a problem, be there for them, and don't over react.Many kids don't tell their parents when they have a problem online because they are afraid they will lose computer privileges. Start e-mentoring early when kids go on the computer so that your family values and rules are ingrained early.
