Police everywhere are issuing warnings that all holidays are busy seasons
for peadophiles. Parents should be monitoring their childs activities
more closely than ever.
Recent police investigations show that it is not just social media and
online virtual world games that are the hunting grounds of peadophile,
they are also sifting through school websites looking for a vulnetable
child or even a single mother.
Detective Inspector Jon Rouse said:
“the internet is a supermarket for pedophiles, but online
predatory behaviour was the most under-reported crime. If
they say ‘Mum, this weirdo just hit me up online’ what’s
your first reaction? You take the internet away. So kids
won’t talk about it”
I hope that detective is wrong and that taking the internet away is NOT
the first, (or second), reaction. Are parents really that stupid? I
suppose a few are, but the vast majority need to teach their kids how
to handle an encounter such as the detective mentioned. On the street,
in church, at the supermarket, or online, learn to deal with danger!
