Teaching Parents The How-To’s Of Daily Online Security & Safety

HOUSTON – Innocent looking apps, like picture-making Instagram or message-sharing KIK, can turn into a predator’s best friend before a parent has even learned how to log in.

As social media becomes more complex, it is hard for some to keep up.

Cammie Moise found out firsthand when she noticed her fourth-grade daughter acting strange. When she pressed the girl, her daughter told her about seeing pornographic pictures on the Internet at a friend’s house.

“She just broke down and cried. Now I have to have the conversation not just about sex, but porn, and what is right and what is not with a fourth-grader, which is not fun,” said Moise, the mother of two pre-teens.

Porn Warning

A recent report shows us some interesting statistics on internet pornography, such as:

40 million Americans regularly visit porn sites
70% of men between the ages of 18-24 visit porn sites in a typical month
1 in 3 porn viewers are women
1 in 4 search engine requests are porn related
20% of men admit to watching porn online at work
Most popular day of the week for viewing porn is Sunday

One of the pornography statistics listed above, said that the average age at which a child first sees porn online is 11. WOW! as parents, we all better be up to date on the internet (information) super highway… because, the vehicle’s are getting faster and the drivers are getting younger!!!

Other notes: Predators take and share pictures of children they find suggestive, which can be as simple as a summertime bathing suit picture. They find them on the Internet, like baseball cards, even if they have no plans to find or meet the child.

The No. 1 safety rule is to make sure your children know their safety comes first. No rule they break should keep them silent if someone is hurting or scaring them.
