No one wants their child to be that victim that we read about in the news all too frequently.
Sites like Omegle that invite kids to talk to strangers are a parents nightmare.
Teaching your child not to talk to strangers is one of the first lessons in life that a parent gives their child. Kids are naturally curious and many kids visit them thinking it’s no big deal. They are disturbing and ripe with nudity and explicit disgusting sexual behavior in addition to being havens for predators.
They look like you or me or anyone down the street.
They are “mostly male, although we are seeing an alarming trend of female predators. A professional, upstanding member in the community but leading a deviant lifestyle through the Internet.” Parents need to pay attention to their children’s online activity and take preventative measures to protect their children from online predators.

At a recent ladies’ get-together, discussion about the murky world of online grooming, cyber stalking, and identity thieves found its way to our lunch table.One unique feature of We Chat is that teens can shake their smartphones and connect with other people who are also shaking their phones. Often, a series of pictures are used to create a short video.It’s a plus for people who are bored and looking to start up conversations with others, but on the downside, it encourages teens to talk to strangers which obviously poses safety risks. These short videos continue to play in a continuous loop.Today's teens spend a whopping 7 1/2 hours each day in front of a screen, according to a survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation.Much of that time is spent chatting with friends on social networking sites.In one online conversation retrieved by the authorities, an abuser tricked his victim and then became increasingly aggressive, saying he did not care if the boy killed himself. The practice appears to be a new, more menacing development in the world of cyber-bullying.
