From the Administrator
"In my judgment, the most significant development is the way in which the justice system has finally started to act as a comprehensive system, not as disjointed, individual components. Federal, State, and local agencies are talking with one another. When a child is missing, no longer is a parent left to his or her own devices to figure out what to do next."
A Safety Net for the Internet: Protecting Our Children
Responsible parents advise their children never to talk to strangers who approach them in person or over the telephone. Wise parents tell their children to tell them about any such encounters. Yet the same parents rarely educate their children about the dangers of exchanges with strangers over the Internet.
Keeping Children Safe: Rhetoric and Reality
Are traditional child safety messages effective, accurate, and complete? Do they adequately warn children about the threats to their safety? Do they unduly frighten children and their parents? Are we giving children information that makes them more vulnerable to victimization rather than less?
