This E-book focused my attention to a problem that I had not previously given any serious thought and opened my eyes to the ease which personal information that could endanger minors could be accessed. Interesting and informative and yes, it has made me aware of this type of Internet danger and the ways to combat it. I would also keep this E-book on hand for constant reference and as a reminder.

As parents we need to be proactive in being aware of what our children are doing online and following the approaches outlined in this book we can be."

As a parent of teens who use the computer, this ebook was an eye opener. I knew the Internet could be a dangerous place but after reading "Don't Take Candy from Strangers" I see it is more dangerous than I thought.
As a child growing up in the 60s I felt safe. We bicycled all over town without fear, played in the neighborhood park, and walked to school from kindergarten through high school.
That isn't the case today. I won't even let my daughter walk the dog or bicycle around the block alone. Yet she has a computer sitting in her room with an Internet connection. This is just as dangerous, or perhaps even more dangerous, than walking around the block alone. And I am responsible for her safety while she is online.
We as parents must protect our children from online predators. Bill Wardell has given us the information in this ebook that we need to guard our home from those who are using the Internet to steal our children. Now it's up to us to take his advice and put it into practice.

Internet filters - Donít rely on them, or think that it will stop bad behavior. Check the computer after a session and make sure that it is logging and working well. Kids that are very tech savvy can disable the logging. So to ensure that they have not done anything to the system make sure to check it once in a while. If you have more than one computer (child owns his/her own computer) then you must be even more careful since anyone with administrator privilege can stop a filter from working.
When picking out a filter, one that has categories is best because if you need to stop some of the categories but not others you can. Iíve used a router that had filtering built in. (each person had a login and it would filter web sites, Aim, and Emails). I would have liked to see more about Acronyms...
You also might want to point out that more and more employers are looking for a mySpace account to screen potential employees. So anything that is out there on the Internet should be considered public.
