© 2010 i-SAFE Inc. Online Realities Sometimes people lie about who they are when socializing online. This could be because they want to bully or steal identities. It also could be that they are just exploring and experimenting. Most online relationships are safe, but sometimes adults lie online in order to meet and form friendships with youth. They are called predators.
© 2010 i-SAFE Inc. The Grooming Process Have you heard of the grooming process? This term is used to mean the methods a predator uses to befriend youth online.
© 2010 i-SAFE Inc. Online Relationships Most online relationships are safe and do not involve a predator! How can you identify someone who might be an online predator?
© 2010 i-SAFE Inc. Online Grooming Studies have shown that an online predator will: encourage sexually explicit talk do or say anything to show they care want to meet
© 2010 i-SAFE Inc. Online Relationships Remember: Most online relationships are safe. However, the way one interacts online can increase the chances of meeting a predator. And no one can predict the harm that a predator could cause.
© 2010 i-SAFE Inc. Minimizing Danger There are things you can do to minimize the danger and the chances of becoming the victim of an online predator, including the following: Choose a safe screen name. Use caution when choosing whom to communicate with. Avoid revealing too much personal information. No matter what, it is important to tell an adult if: You feel uncomfortable online for any reason. You are approached by someone who discusses inappropriate things. You are approached by someone who wants to meet you offline.
© 2010 i-SAFE Inc. Minimizing Danger Think about what UR Talking About. A predator looks for youth who willingly talk about sex online. It’s not appropriate! And it’s NOT SAFE!
© 2010 i-SAFE Inc. Review Think Safety First Use an appropriate screen name. Don’t engage in talk about sex online. Don’t agree to meet an online stranger. Avoid secret online friendships. Find an offline friend if you’re feeling down.
© 2010 i-SAFE Inc. Review It is important to stop the communication and tell an adult if: You feel uncomfortable online for any reason. You are approached by someone who discusses inappropriate things. You are approached by someone who wants to meet you offline. Who can U Tell? Tell your parent, guardian, or another trusted adult. Tell a teacher or another adult at school. Bottom line - Tell someone!
