Anyone with kids knows that the Internet plays a huge part in your child life these days, and some "bad guys" also know the kids are out there too.

 

Deschutes County Sheriff's Detective Zach Neemann says the best thing you can do is keep those lines of communication open with your child about Internet dangers and keep tabs on the websites they visit.

 

Neemann says "sexting" also is becoming a big problem. 

 

"It’s not like you're showing somebody face to face the intimate parts of your body. You’re just doing it over the phone or on a webcam, or things like that. Which doesn't feel necessarily as invading to these young kids. And trying to teach them that these have real world implications is a very difficult task."

 

Neeman says kids also learn to use an Internet "shorthand" when writing or messaging and there are websites where you can learn what they are talking about.
