Keeping Kids Safe While Social Networking Online
Social networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook are making it even easier for predators to get close to our children and teens with little chance of detection. Unless parents are vigilant with the online activities and friends of their kids a predator can easily sneak in and gain their trust. MySpace is taking a pro-active step for parents to learn more about social networking and how best to allow their children to safely use these types of sites. The MySpace Child Safety Network is totally free for parents and kids and is loaded with all kinds of information to keep kids safer while they use these tools to connect with their friends. Just as parents can use a child locator device to watch over their kids they can now use these helpful tools to monitor them online.
