Stranger Danger

via Photo Challenge: Danger!

Unfortunately one of the things that scares me is the internet, as much as I absolutely love social media you really do have to be so careful. I worry about my young people that don’t know any better being targeted and it makes me feel so unsafe.

The internet is so powerful and it is horrible to see it being used in wrongful ways like cyber bullying, grooming, people even videoing physical abuse and posting it online. There are so many things online that people don’t talk about but the sad truth is its happening and its so dangerous.

So as melancholy as it is my first thought when I see Danger is he dangers lurching online. Be safe and be smart. Get to know anyone you talk to online before ever considering meeting them, meet in a safe public place and make sure to let people close to you know where, when and who you are going to meet.
