Chatting online about sex adult s only
The Internet Predators openly tell their age and their intentions and your kids openly talk to them about their own sexual desires. In the past, the thought was that the Internet predators were duping teenagers into thinking they were talking to a kid their own age.
The statistics of this study shows that teenagers are knowingly chatting to adults. A world where our children still need to be protected from their curiosity.
And they won’t talk about anything sexual until you do.
That is when a teen sends nude or semi nude pictures of themselves and sends them to other people with their cell phone. However, many teens remain unconcerned about the risks of sharing personal info on the Internet and nearly two-thirds post photos or videos of themselves on social networks like Facebook and Friendster.
The findings are from the third annual survey Cox and NCMEC have fielded to help parents realize the potential dangers of the Internet.
Women usually feel more threatened by the emotional betrayal of a partner’s online affair, while men are more concerned about physical encounters, Hertlein says, but the gender differences are lessening.
“That is starting to even out in part because of the equality of opportunity that the Internet brings to everybody,” she says.
