Cyber Friending Of Sex Offenders

The Kiwanis of Friendly Duluth has a contest. The past presidents plan a great program and try to increase attendance. If you would like to be a guest let one of us know. Denny Nelson was the president in 2008, and he is having Tom Champaine from the Superior Police Department speak.

We think our kids are safe at home. The Internet is a scary place out there. Once your child jumps on the Internet there is a super highway of information. Some of it is not good.

-Accordng to the FBI, 1 in 10 children online have gotten an e-mail or instant message from a stranger and more than half have written back.

-1 in 33 kids hav been aggressively solicitited to meet this cyber friend in person.

-1-4 kids ages 10-17 have been exposed to unwanted sexual material online.

Kids are curious. It is easy for them to get enticed into an inappropriate relationship with an adult who may be a child molester.

This meeting will be in the Great Hall/Radisson and will run until 1:30, Wednesday, June 1st. The detective will be using his lap top and a large movie screen to show us how predators contact children. Do you want to be a guest? Would you like to learn about the Kiwanis of Friendly Duluth and all that we do in the region?
