When it comes to safety on the internet, less is more. Felix Nunez of the Webb County Sheriff’s Department says,"the teenagers especially, not to be giving up too much detailed information when they're in the chat rooms online, Facebook or Twitter.” Giving out specific information can let a predator figure out where and when a child could be somewhere to be easily preyed upon. Nunuz says, “…not to be giving out their exact age, when they're home alone, what school they go to.” When kids are not in school full time and spending more time at home ont he computer, it is extra important to pay close attention to their online activities. When it comes to knowing what your kids are up to, sergeant nunez recommends having an all access pass to their online activities. Nunez says, "…to know the passwords to their kids' emails, facebook accounts. that way they can be more involved and know who their children are chatting with.” If parents suspect activity, the sheriff's department recommends the mom or dad do some detective work of their own. Nunez says, "…go into their account and review conversations that they're having with that friend of theirs and if they do suspect some criminal activity going on contact our office.” When we talked to some local parents about preventing abuse... they were all for tackling the reality that these people exist head on. Patricia Carrera says, "As a parent it's very important to educate myself and friends and family aboutt hese kinds of individuals who are in our community and unfortunately prey on our children.” One educator, whose children are grown, says for her...banning certain activities worked to give her peace of mind that her kids were safe. Sara Guerra says, "no sleepovers.” She also said keeping kids off the computer...means more time for more important things. Guerra says, "with the computers, not getting into the computer so much, having more family time.” All experts and parents agreed, that the number one way to prevent your children from becoming victims is to be involved in their lives.
