Internet and children; Computer crimes--Prevention;
Children and adolescents are vulnerable in person and now have become vulnerable through technology. The Internet is becoming larger, and so are the opportunities for predators to contact children. Using the Internet and online chat rooms, sexual predators begin to groom their victims and move the relationship forward. Children become involved in sexual photographs, videos, and telephone conversations. Eventually, a meeting is set up between the child and the predator.
Many people need to be provided information to keep children safe, and the issue needs to be addressed at all governmental and educational levels. School counselors can take charge and provide children and adolescents with individual, group, and classroom counseling for students in dealing with Internet safety issues.
