Online sexual behavior

Kids enjoy connecting with others through social media and other avenues online.  Most youth talk online with their friends and family than strangers.  But as a parent you should be concerned that a stranger with a long history of doing bad, evil things to children come into contact with your child. Online predatory behavior is when adults contact youth over the internet in an attempt to “groom” them for sexual relationships.  Here are some common misconceptions:

  1. Teens are more at risk for online solicitations than children
  2. Majority of online solicitations come from teens themselves
  3. Adults that solicit teens are typically up front about their true age and intentions
