Predators in Cyberspace

(WFLX) - If your child spends time in cyberspace, you may be concerned about Internet predators.

While it is always important to teach kids to protect themselves online, new research from Harvard University indicates that adult Internet predators are not as big a threat as previously thought.

According to the university, 13 percent of children receive sexual solicitations online but very few are from adults over the age of 21.

The results indicate that parents should not only explain the dangers of adult predators, but also predators who may be their peers.
