Is your child safe on the Internet? Friday I shared some ways to protect your child on the Internet, with the number one way to be with your child while they’re on-line. Brenda Preston contacted me after that article ran.

Her son, Andrew, was a victim of cyber-bullying. Someone created an impostor profile using his photo and name, making up conversations on the fake page about illegal and obscene activity. “I was a naive parent believing if we watched our son while he was on MySpace he would be safe,” Brenda said. Andrew’s story was profiled on the Dr. Phil show.

“I have become an Internet safety advocate,” Brenda told me. “Education and a safe place to put kids on the Internet is the key. I have become a volunteer Mom for SafeWave.org. SafeWave is a not for profit company and creators of iLAND5.com. I5 is a bully-free and predator-free website for a kid that’s free to use.” Full story.
