John Walsh of America’s Most Wanted Addresses Online Safety During Today’s Livestreamed Panel

Earlier this month Cox Communications released results from their Tweet Internet Safety Survey conducted in conjunction with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

876 tweens ages 10-13 were interviewed along with their parents and findings indicated that while online safety is a major concern of parents of tweens and parents have done a good job of monitoring internet use on the computers, computers are only one way that tweens are accessing online content.  Mobile devices and gaming consoles are widely used but parental controls are rarely used, therefore leaving kids vulnerable.

What are the risks facing our kids when it comes to online behavior and the real world?

Join me and John Walsh of America’s Most Wanted today from 6-7 pm EST for a livestreamed panel where you can submit questions regarding safety issues affecting children and families.  Our conversation during the #CoxTakeCharge panel will focus on what can we do to make sure our kids are not engaging in risky behavior on social sites.
