    What is the deal with the old men and young boys???

    How sick!

    I know, I saw a special, I forgot what channel, was it CNN? NBC? I forgot. Well the reporter went online and pretended to be a 13 year old and made a date with these men. There was a hidden camera. There was like 10 guys that showed up, one of the was a pastor, another one was a teacher, and the other one I think it was a doctor, and one of them fell for the same trap the next day, how pathetic. I wonder how many people are out there like this? I wonder how many of them in the JWS? in other religions? on this board??

    Real easy to deal with.

    The computer belongs in a common area. Period.

    My Grandkids have a lot of free alone time on the comp. Each has their own computer(side by side) upstairs in the loft area. Their parents can't see them and they are usually too busy to check much. After seeing the Dateline show on internet predators I came down hard on my daughter. These kids are 15 (Boy)and 14.(Girl) A dangerous age.Well telling her about the show and having her watch the rerun, she started questioning the kids. Seems the girl has talked to strangers on the computor. Her Mom was shocked!..The kids are usually pretty naive and the girl is at an age where she loves attention. I was worried. That is why I talked to her. They are home alone quite a bit and I was afraid they may get curious on the internet. Plus be easy targets for some nut . They have ways of getting info from the kids on where they live and if they are alone, etc.

    I was happy my grandaughter finally admitted to talking with strangers... her Mom swore she didn't and was quite surprised to hear she did.

    I couldn't believe the guys that do this. They looked like ordinary people..not nutjobs...and I was surprised at how cunning they were.

    You just can't supervise kids enough these days and yet you don't want to make basket cases out of them by warning them all the time...It was so much easier when my kids were little.

    Spector is our friend... :) I check every evening.

    Trust is one thing, but, trust without limits is a good way to lose your kids to some Internet freak...

    a sad reality indeed. i agree that trust is the issue. where do you draw the boundaries with children, when do you trust them. the reality is, these issues will continue to be raised... much to the chagrin of parents. there's little we can do, other than educate our children. but how? kids are educated on sex and still make poor decisions regarding it.

    As a minor who has a fairly secret life on the internet (here), I can relate from both sides.

    I can recognize a predator, and could, without a doubt, protect my safety from the same. Not every kid is like that though.

    I really don't have much to say, I am just dumbfounded at the whole story...

    "They complimented me all the time," Justin said. "They told me I was smart, they told me I was handsome."

    You guys do that to me too. Is that because you want me naked??
