Although many of us lock our doors and arm our homes with security systems, there is another way, potentially, dangerous intruders enter our homes – through our computers. Particularly with the rise in school assignments requiring Internet research, and with tweens and teens wanting to connect with friends online after school, it is important to educate children on how to safely use the Internet and suspicious messages to avoid. 

According to SafeFlorida.net, every day 77 million children use the internet and, of children ages 10-17, one out of every seven will be sexually solicited online.  Talk to your children about how they use the Internet and establish firewalls or restricted access to potentially harmful websites. If your child has a Facebook or social media account make sure you have access to it so you can see what your child posts and what others send to them. You can also visit Safe Florida’s website here
