Adult one to one chat room
These predators sometimes prod their online acquaintances to exchange personal information, such as addresses and phone numbers, thus putting the kids they are chatting with — and their families — at risk. Because many kids have been told by parents not to give out their phone numbers, pedophiles may encourage kids to call them — and if they do, caller ID will instantly give the offenders the kids' phone numbers.Warning signs of a child being targeted by an online predator include spending long hours online, especially at night, phone calls from people you don't know, or unsolicited gifts arriving in the mail. They can use it to research school reports, communicate with teachers and other kids, and play interactive games.Kids who are old enough to swipe a screen can have access to the world. For example, an 8-year-old might do an online search for "Lego." But with just one missed keystroke, the word "Legs" is entered instead, and the child may be directed to a slew of websites with a focus on legs — some of which may contain pornographic material.
No one knows how common chat-room predators are, but pedophiles (adults who are sexually interested in children) are known to frequent chat rooms.
You can also get software that helps block access to certain sites based on a "bad site" list that your ISP creates.
Filtering programs can block sites from coming in and restrict personal information from being sent online.
That's why it's important to be aware of what your kids see and hear on the Internet, who they meet, and what they share about themselves online.
As with any safety issue, it's wise to talk with your kids about your concerns, take advantage of resources to protect them, and keep a close eye on their activities.
