Meeting on Internet safety for teens and parents set for Sunday

Staff Report

POMEROY — A meeting is scheduled for Sunday afternoon for parents and teens regarding Internet safety and Internet predators.

The meeting is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Sunday in the Pomeroy Library basement.

“Our kids are at risk. We all need more knowledge to combat these situations,” said Serena Larsen, one of the event organizers. “We are all susceptible. ‘Not my kid’ isn’t cutting it. Law enforcement is doing a great job. We, as parents, need to help.”

The focus group for the discussion is teenagers and their parents. All teens and children must be accompanied by an adult.

Speakers for the event are to include a deputy who has worked on cases regarding Internet predators, a prevention specialist from Health Recovery Services and possibly a victim of an Internet predator.

Light refreshments are being served.
