Parents Should Use Sex Offender Lists To Protect Their Children
In 2006 the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act was signed into law in order to make it easier for authorities to keep track of those who had been convicted of sex crimes after they were released from prison. This act created the national sex offender registry which many feel is a excellent attempt at keeping track of those who may harm our children while others feel that it is only a database and not very effective at protecting those who need it most. But parents forget that ultimately it is up to them to protect their child from these potential harmful predators. Just as some parents use a GPS child locator to track their kids they should also use their local sex offender list so that they know where the potential danger spots are in your area for their child to be alone.
