Introduction: The Perfect Storm
Parents: This may be the most valuable parenting tool out there. Donna Rice Hughes, president of Enough Is Enough, has created a curriculum for parents; the first line of defense against these predators.
Despite the Internet’s many wonderful benefits, a perfect storm has emerged for the online victimization of children.

Law enforcement limitations and challenges abound, and naïve kids are engaging in risky online behavior. Parents, educators and other caring adults must serve as the first line of defense to protect kids online, but they are often uninformed or ill-equipped to deal with these and other evolving threats. Are you prepared to protect your kids so they can enjoy the wonders of the Internet while being spared from the dangers?
