Oprah

Did anyone see Oprah yesterday? Now I am way out of the loop..so it could have been a rerun. I only saw the last 20-30 minutes of it. about the dangers of webcams with teens. and the boy who had a porn business with his...and that that really is the main reason kids have them....not necessarily initially..... scary. It just shows that our kids are so bombarded with evil. Made me very sad...but glad I guess that the info is getting out, so we can be aware. The warning they gave was NO WEBCAMS for teens. The part I saw also talked about the thousands of clients..pedophiles...who work together to get more kids involved and hooked. seduce and bribe them to send a photo, etc....and that they are average, around kids a lot, seemingly normal people. scary. fortunately, we aren't an up on electronics type of family. But, we do all have to be wary. The biggest mistake we can make is think our kids are safe from sickos!..it is my prayer that living in the country, outdoor rather than indoor activities will protect them, and good living and education on what's right and wrong...acceptable and not...etc. I am soo grateful for the church organizations we have as a support...anyways. let me know what you think?

I saw part of the show too. Scary how easy it is for kids to get lured in.

I avoided it. I'm just not sure where the line is drawn that would cause the "child" to be responsible for his/her actions. How does taking off your clothes in front of a camera all of the sudden become a good idea?
Not having seen the show, I'm sure I must have missed the point it was trying to make.
All in all a scary subject!

I didn't see that, but I watch Dateline all the time and it is SCARY! I do agree that hopefully getting the kids hooked on outdoor activities will be a jump start in the right direction!

I missed that one, but I agree with you, we now live in a time where we can't bee too sure what our kids will face, and be challenged to do. We really have to work hard to teach them the gospel and the truth of that kind of behavior. It scares me how close to home these things can really get.
