I can remember being introduced to the internet when I was around 12 or 13 years old and I still remember how excited I was when we got the internet at our house. I was elated to have this technology sitting right in my own
living room and I can remember spending hours fighting with my 3 sisters on who was going to get on the computer next. One of my younger sisters and I quickly found a chat room and we spent countless hours while our parents weren't home, chatting with complete strangers. I can remember we were both drawn to this one boy our age who called himself "Badboy" and we spent months talking to him. One day, he finally came clean that he was actually a man in his 40's, not the 13 year old boy we thought he was. This was a frightening experience for my sister and I, as we had shared a lot of personal information with him thinking he was just another kid like us. We vowed to never tell my parents about what had happened. After my children became old enough to use the computer and get on the internet, my own experience has always remained in the back of my mind! More than ever, parents need to focus on internet safety for kids and if you have children who use the computer, you need to educate yourself on the dangers. The internet can be an awesome tool for children but it can also lead to a lot of trouble if you aren't careful! Knowing is power and there are tools available today so parents can always be "in the know."
