Is there really a need for cyber safety?
The average age of exposure to pornography is less than 11 years old. (Net Nanny)
43% of teens age 13-17 report that they have experienced some sort of cyberbullying in the past year. (Harris Interactive Trends & Tudes, 2007)
One million children were harassed, threatened or subjected to other forms of cyberbullying on Facebook during the past year. (Consumer Reports, 2011)
Only 1/3 of households with Internet access are actively protecting their children with filtering or blocking software. (2006 report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children)
In 82% of online sex crimes against minors, the offender used the victim's social networking site to gain information about the victim's likes and dislikes. (Journal of Adolescent Health 47, 2010)
1 in 5 US teenagers who regularly log on to the internet say they have received an unwanted sexual solicitation via the web. (Crimes Against Children Research Center)

[A] gruesome practice [predators engage in] is using social media to collect potentially embarrassing information about a teen, whether personal information or sexting images, and then using extortion techniques to force the child to share more contact or risk exposure. Across the country, there have been too many cases of teenagers falling victim to these predators and continuing to share more and more sexual communications for fear of their secrets being revealed. - Risa Ferman, Huffington Post 2013

Deuteronomy 11:18-21
Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.
Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
