It can not be said enough.. You have to protect your children from these folks.
1. No computers in the bedroom. Keep any computer hooked to the Internet in a public room like a den or something.
2. Get a filter. Try BSafe Online’s filter free for 10 days. (yes, I used to work for them, but I get nothing for recommending the product, and I recommended it before, during and after my employment.). If you don’t like their filter, I don’t care, but get one you do like. Good reviews at www.moralmetric.com
3. Know what your kids are doing online. There is never any reason for them to go in a public chat room – and Instant messaging should only be with friends they already have – not for making new one.
4. Don’t let them fill out a profile. It only works as pervert-bait.
