ABC Nightline: A Sting Operation to Catch Internet Predators

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Parry Aftab, an Internet security and privacy lawyer, said the most important thing parents and adults can to is teach children good judgment and that "the most important filter is the one between their ears."

"Teach them the people who are too good to be true are too good to be true and if an adult wants to meet them it's not for love and affection and to marry them some day -- they've got one thing in mind and one thing only and not all kids come home in one piece & out of a body bag," Aftab said.

It's a horrible topic but one that cannot be ignored. Read it all being aware that the subject is disturbing.
