Just because it’s online doesn’t mean kids know best

Parents, please pay attention to what your kids are doing online. Yesterday, my daughter received an instant message from a friend asking for video chat. When the chat began, there was “something wrong” on the friend’s side. My daughter could only transmit, not receive video or sound. The person on the other end proceeded to ask her to go up to her bedroom and get undressed.

My daughter didn’t fall for it, she questioned it. It turns out that the friend’s accounts were hacked, possibly even by someone physically on her computer while the family was out.

Parents, please use this as an opportunity to educate your kids. If something doesn’t seem right, just get out. And keep that personal information out of your facebook and other accounts.
