Most sites have a way to ban these people or you can bar your child from being contacted by them.
With some site you can only chat with the people you select to see of verbally talk to and allow no new people to contact you. One of the biggest problems with online chatting is that it is a big part of the games kids play online.Sadly, the people playing are not always kids and parents will notice the little things that sometimes give them away.Various adults and children do this very thing, when given the opportunity.Lonely or bored kids using the Internet for entertainment are vulnerable to a whole new world of threats and input from strangers.The popular search engine Google lists the “Top 15 Chatting Sites” in an easy-to-perform search, which search also reveals sites labeled as “naughty” sites and additionally sites for families to chat together and even a site offering humorous chats as entertainment.
The total range of available chats, then, is not totally a dark world full of porn and people hoping to prey on others.The names they chose or inferences to things that are way beyond the years of an eight year old.If the computer is place in the earshot of parents, when a child is asked personal questions or certain key words are heard, the red flag can go up.Online sites which are used primarily to encourage unsuspecting individuals of any age to chat to strangers are becoming more common and posing a greater threat to youth and to vulnerable individuals than ever before.The updated warning from parents to kids needs to shift quickly from “don’t talk to or take candy from strangers” to “don’t visit online sites to talk with strangers or give any information to anyone online.” Candy isn’t even the biggest threat anymore! Giving information of any kind while talking online to a stranger is risky even if the informant does not disclose an identity or any contact information to the recipient of the information because of the existence of tracking capabilities which can be used silently by a perpetrator trying to obtain information from a child or vulnerable individual.Use an area of the home that is impersonal when chatting on anonymous chat sites.
