There are websites that provide support for kids in crisis. Many organizations make positive contributions to society through the valuable information they provide online.
The Internet provides kids with resources to learn and can provide alternative sources to help them deal with their everyday lives. Kids now have the means to reach out to the world at their fingertips. They can communicate and socialize with absolutely anyone.

Parents and teachers have been discussing “stranger danger” with children for years. Denise helps you take that conversation a step further. In a technologically advanced society, children are vulnerable to online predators, or “virtual strangers,” who have the potential to harm them psychologically and, eventually, physically. Do your kids a favor by educating yourself about potential online dangers. This safeguard requires little investment on your part; in terms of protection, you will yield high dividends!
