Now that we are approaching the National Missing Children’s Day on May 25th, you will no doubt be looking for the best way to protect your children from a potential aggressor. Anti-Predator Project is a non-profit private investigation agency dedicated to combating human trafficking and sexual predators in the United States.
Anti-Predator Project co-founder Lizz Schrunk along with other investigators help us on finding the best approach to protect your family and children. The most important fact she noticed was that most parents do not think that sexual predators are the closest to their kids when being at home. ‘Many parents were frustrated when blamed for their children kidnapping or accidents because most of it starts at home,’ Schrunk notes. ‘It seems like they are afraid to intervene online or to check up on their children’s social media accounts.’
To help care givers, Schrunk used the information she got along with her investigation team to come up with five very useful tips:
- Social Media
Pay close attention to your children’s social media, know who they are corresponding with and what social media accounts they have.
- Place of the computer
Keep the family computer in a common room at the house like the living room or kitchen. Limit the amount of private time your kids get with the computer.
- Accounts Passwords
Make sure you have the account passwords of all of your children’s social media accounts.
- Stranger Danger
Make sure your kids understand that “stranger danger” danger still exists and if something doesn’t seem right to get out of there.
- Entertainment Industry
Be aware of “modeling scouts” “music producers,” anyone in the entertainment business or anyone that is asking to spend a lot of time alone with your child. Do background checks, if it seems too good to be true it probably is.
