Dateline Part 2

stg_hz_dateline_815a.jpgOk, so last week I wrote about Dateline catching Internet predators who try to meet 13-15 year old girls. You’re in luck because tonight on NBC they are doing another one. It’s at 9 eastern but it might be different if you are in another timezone. I’ll update this post after the show. I just finished watching Dateline and it was really good tonight. They were in California busting everyone. They had a marine, a guy with a penis pump in his truck, and an old man looking to hook up with a 13 year old boy. Tonight though the cops went to the guys houses and offices and confiscated computers. Next week they’re gonna get a doctor who is respected in his community…haha, he even starts crying..I can’t wait. Check out Datelines website, they’ve got some good information to protect your kids.

Teach your children to:·  Think before they click: With whom are they chatting or e-mailing, what are they saying and how are they saying it? Will the person on the other end know they are joking? ·  Walk away from the computer and “Take 5” before responding to something that upsets them online ·  Avoid spreading rumors, assisting in cyberbullying or sharing private communications online. ·  Follow the golden rule of cyberspace: Don’t do anything online that you wouldn’t do in real life! Follow responsible safety practices yourself:

  • Install spyware and adware blocking software on your computer
  • Make sure you have a working firewall
  • Install anti-virus software and update it regularly
  • Take advantage of spam-blocking tools offered by your Internet provider or e-mail software
