But My Child is Safe, She’s in Her Room…
Our children may seem physically safer than ever before but do you know who has access to your child through their phone? Luring a child away for a secret meetup is an art for sexual predators who often pretend to be a young friend that connects emotionally with your child. As an adult you would likely see right through this type of deception but for a child looking for approval, a meaningful connection, acceptance or attention these advances are very effective.
You Have The Right To Know.
As a parent you have the right to know everything that’s going on with your child’s life and that includes who is talking to your child through their phone. There are literally hundreds of mobile apps that connect your child to strangers in the world. Many of those applications show the location of your child to potential predators through use of geolocation. The expectation that a child under the age of 18 should have privacy on their phone is FALSE. As parents we are responsible for the safety and wellbeing of our children. If we don’t know who they are engaging with and what those interactions are, then you have no way of helping your child learn to identify danger.
