Chat Rooms Predators often snoop around child chat rooms for potential victims. They use various methods to get close to children but even if a child is not receptive to the predators advances, he can still harass and endanger the child by searching for information about the child. Countermeasures for Predators Use parental controls (if available)

Monitor childs actions on the internet Discuss appropriate internet activities Purchase NetNanny ($40) or similar Caution children about predators Limit the time child spends on a computer. Use software that creates a log of sites visited and every keystroke that is made on the computer. Randomly check emails on childs account Move the computer into a family area The internet is not a babysitter. More Countermeasures

Discuss Internet crime and safety issues with your family Discuss with other family members expectations with use of the computer. Sign an agreement between parents and children that outlines expectations and the amount of time allowed on the computer per day or week. Include in agreement who can be contacted or talked with on the computer. If family member receives an email that offends you or them, contact your Internet Provider and

complain about the message being received. Cyber-bullying is Coming to a School Near You if it hasnt already. Concerns include: Cyber-bullying can be much more damaging psychologically and much more intense. It creates a barrier between the bully and the victim. This can allow someone who normally wouldn't be a bully to become

one because there is no face to face contact. Cyber-bullying It is difficult to catch the cyber-bully. When identified, the suspects defense is often that it was someone else impersonating them using their password. Camera phones are making cyber-bullying more creative. Taking someones picture and then manipulating it, then posting it on a web site or in e-mail. Imagine getting an e-mail of a

nude individual with your face attached to it, and youre only a teenager. Many think this behavior is a joke and not as serious as bullying face to face. Cyber-bullying Victims are often targeted because they are considered different usually those considered overweight, small, with a learning disability or overly sensitive. Many face dirty digital tricks that range

from derogatory comments about them online to embarrassing e-mail attributed to them intended to insult friends and crushes.

www.xanga.com www.facebook.com Parents Must Be Aware Many kids do not want to report this problem to their parents for fear of how their parents may react. They fear their parents will take away their cell phone, computer, or Internet access. Obviously this solution will stop the

messages, but then the child feels harassed by the bully and punished by the parents when the equipment is removed. Signs That a Child Might Be At Risk On-line Spends large amounts of time on-line, especially at night Find pornography on child's computer Child receives phone calls from unknown men or is making calls, sometimes long distance, to unfamiliar numbers Child receives mail, gifts, or packages from unfamiliar

sources Child turns the computer monitor off or quickly changes the screen on the monitor when you come into the room Child becomes withdrawn from the family Child is using an on-line account belonging to someone else Cyber Bullying Tips Tell a trusted adult about the bullying, and keep telling until the adult takes action. Dont open or read messages by

cyber bullies. Tell your school if it is school related. Schools have a bullying solution in place. Cyber Bullying Tips Dont erase the messagesthey may be needed to take action. Protect yourselfnever agree to meet with the person or with anyone you meet online. If bullied through chat or instant

messaging, the bully can often be blocked. If you are threatened with harm, inform the local police. What Can Parents Do? Establish a bond of trust and open communication with their child.
