Everyone seems concerned about the economy. The focus is on stock market losses, bailouts and housing slumps. It is easy during these financially stressful times to become distracted and let our guard down when it comes to protecting our children online.
When parents fight over money, struggle with unemployment and agonize over lost investments, children are affected. Stressful home situations can drive children to find comfort from online “friends”. Online sexual predators take advantage of every situation they can to find and groom their victims.
During these financially challenging times, let us remember what is truly important. Losing a child is much more devastating than losing an investment.
