Education about online predators is vital for children | #predators | #childpredators | #kids

Sarah is a 14-year-old girl from Edmond who plays basketball, has a tight-knit friend group, loves her Goldendoodle named Gracie, and comes from a caring home. Like most girls her age, she is active on social media with easily discoverableaccounts. She prides herself on sharing funny content and keeps her username public so her friends’ friends can follow her online. 

Recently, a boy named Ben started posting  flattering comments under Sarah’s Instagram photos. Sarah starts to feel close to Ben after messaging him for a few weeks. She talks to him about her friends, her school, what her parents do, and even gives him a tour of her house on Snapchat. She loves that he always asks her about herself, is always excited to get photos of Gracie, and that he’s different from the boys at her school.
