Sadly, if your kids or teens are participating they probably are already interacting with strangers online. It is nearly impossible to tell online if a child is role-playing with another peer or if in fact the other role-player is a child predator acting as a peer to earn your child’s trust.Often it starts as an innocent role-play and grows inappropriate through time using the child as a springboard to ask for additional contact with them or personal images.
Close enough that they will go so far as to give out personal information and/or contact the stranger on other venues such as Kik, Snapchat or by texting.
You will receive a response from a peer advocate prompting you for your question.
