Children Dangerously Flirting Online

Children Dangerously Flirting Online

The access to online sites that promote innocent Flirting is drawing attention by law enforcement because of the growing incidents of rapes on minor boys and girls. This is scary as a parent and elementary school teacher. I present at workshops and seminars hoping to teach youth the dangers of online content and the
dangers of making unseen friendships.

Sites entice and encourage young girls and boys to flirt, but it is being found that older men are enticing young girls and even boys to meet face to face with dangerous results.

Parents Beware of Cyber Sexing of Children

 Parents should be concerned with their children’s online activities this summer while school is out; especially when they are alone or with friends surfing the web on Social Media sites. I’m concerned as a teacher when I hear boys and girlsin elementary school talking about their Facebookfriends and the discussions they have online while chatting,sharing information, pictures and videos. Their chats range from events at school to communityhappenings, family situations and interacting with theironline and offline friends. The disturbing part is hearing10,11, 12, 13 year old boys and girls not even old enoughto drive talk about adult content, using profanity andsexual situations.
