Even just learning small changes in app like Instagram can help keep predators from arriving at your front door.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) December 12, 2014
Paul Silverman, a forward thinking residential Realtor, technology educator, and safety advocate, has today announced the debut of the new website Online Kid Cop (http://www.OnlineKidCop.com). Designed to provide education and training for parents concerning the rise of cyber-predators, cyber-bullying and other threats children face daily due to exposure to digital technology, the website is a repository of essential knowledge and easy to follow training. “While there are many excellent and credible organizations out there on the front lines helping protect children, I’m happy to offer this new layer of education to help bridge the technology gap between parents and children,” Silverman stated. Children and teens are addicted to their devices – from smartphones to tablets to PCs, and parents are unlikely to know what their children are actually doing on those devices, despite the frightening increase in sex crimes, abductions and cyber-bullying children face today. The FBI estimates 50,000 sexual predators are online at any given time. Children ages 12-15 make up 50% of online sexual exploitation cases. 43% of kids have been bullied online, and 25% have had it happen more than once. Online Kid Cop was designed to educate and empower parents to prevent their children from becoming just one more statistic. “For the first time, parents can be taught how to make their children safe and not just informed of frightening statistics and stories,”added Paul Silverman.
Online Kid Cop offers free education and training for parents through videos, graphics and screen demonstrations teaching parents how to check the settings on their children’s profiles to ensure safety. Additionally, premium material is available via the organization’s premium content channel available only to subscribers – a single, affordable one-time subscription fee gives parents access to an immense range of educational resources.
