Transcript of Online Predators
"Technology has revolutionized our connectivity to one another and made the world accessible in unprecedented ways. At the same time, it has had a profound impact on children in terms of sexual abuse and exploitation"
(Canadian Center for Child Protection, n.a., para. 1)
"The sexual exploitation of children and youth is a disturbing issue that crosses all social and economic boundaries. All children are at risk. Child and youth sexual exploitation includes the luring of a young person via the Internet for sexual purposes, the prostitution of someone under the age of 18, and distributing, selling or making child pornography"
(Government of Alberta, 2014, para.1).
Sexting is the act of sending sexually explicit messages and/or photographs eith their cell phone. Many teens exchange provocative and nude, sexual images of themselves and send them to their boyfriends/girlfriends. (Alert, 2014, para. 1)
"A video gaming console is an interactive computer or electronic device that uses a television monitor to display the video game, like an X-box or Playstation. It can connect to the Internet so several players can interact online in real-time, but perpetrators can also use these systems to contact children"
(Alert, 2014, para. 9)
"These websites allow users to create personalized profiles and incorporate aspects of chat rooms, instant messaging and file sharing programs. These sites are particularly attractive to perpetrators because they potentially open up the electronic door to a large number of children"
(Alert, 2014, para. 8)

By; Alyssa Sawa & Chanel Tellier

It is created deliberately and can be shared easily through the Internet, online platforms and portable technology devices"
(Alert, 2014, para. 5).

What Fuels Internet Predators?
Risky Online Behaviors
"Easy and anonymous access to children
•Risky online behavior of youth
•Law enforcement challenges
•East access to “a la carte” child pornography"
(Enough is Enough, 2013, para. 3).
"Develop trust and secrecy: manipulate child by listening to and sympathizing with child’s problems and insecurities
Affirm feelings and choices of child
Exploit natural sexual curiosities of child
Ease inhibitions by gradually introducing sex into conversations or exposing them to pornography
Flatter and compliment the child excessively, sends gifts, and invests time, money, and energy to groom child
Develop an online relationship that is romantic, controlling, and upon which the child becomes dependent
Drive a wedge between the child and his or her parents and friends
Make promises of an exciting, stress-free life, tailored to the youth’s desire
Make threats, and often will use child pornography featuring their victims to blackmail them into silence"
(Enough is Enough,2013, para.7).
"The more risky behaviors kids engage in online, the more likely they will receive an online sexual solicitation. These risky behaviors include:
Posting personal information (50%)
Interacting with online strangers (45%)
Placing strangers on buddy lists (35%)
Sending personal information to strangers (26%)
Visiting X-rated sites (13%)
Talking about sex with strangers (5%)"
(Enough is Enough, 2013, para. 3)
