My Advice to Parents During COVID-19 as an Internet Safety Expert and Abduction Survivor.
Updated: Apr 5
Kids are home from school and online more than ever. They are, understandably, turning to the Internet, social media, and online gaming for human connection.
I mean, aren’t we all? 🤷♀️
This makes them vulnerable and leaves them at risk to online dangers - cyberbullying, sexual exploitation, online predators.
I know these dangers all too well. At 13, I was kidnapped and held captive by an online predator.
After my rescue, I chose to dedicate my life to fighting predatory crimes and keeping kids safe. Now, I am a motivational speaker, advocate, and Internet safety expert. I also have a Master's Degree in Forensic Psychology.
Safety is at the forefront of our minds currently, and we must remember to keep our children safe online.
It’s a scary stressful time for all of us – adults and kids alike. This is not about adding another fearful thing to their lives, it’s about teaching them to be safe in this new normal.
