Internet pornography, sexting, online predators . . . our children are exposed to garbage and dangers that once could only be found in the seediest parts of town. Now, with a click and a keystroke, your children, from the comfort of their bedroom, can visit Web sites that offer the vilest types of pornography. These images can even be downloaded onto a cel phone or an iPod. Child predators posing as teenagers are befriending our children on Facebook and MySpace, creating dangerous relationships that can end in tragedy. What can you — as a parent, youth pastor, teacher or mentor — do to alert the young people in your life of the dangers awaiting them in the online world that they all live in? What do you need to know to protect them as they surf the Web, download movies and music, and make new friends online?
Learn how you can protect your children from the dangers that the digital age poses. The Family Foundation is joining with Enough is Enough and the Attorney General’s office to present Internet Safety 101 on Thursday, April 29, from 1:00 – 4:30 p.m. at Immanuel Baptist Church in Richmond. This free, hard-hitting session, led by Enough is Enough president Donna Rice Hughes, will prepare you to protect your family and equip you to train others in this critical area of need. Each church or ministry represented will receive a complimentary 200+ page workbook and a 4-lesson DVD to share with others in their congregation. All are welcome to attend. To register or for more information, call Roger Pogge at 804-343-0010 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
