I frequently receive emails with information or resources that are suggested for our audience. Many times, that information is not necessarily appropriate for the ministry or is simply about someone looking for free advertising to the law enforcement community. Occasionally though, I receive really great information that is really appropriate and useful. The information and link I am passing along here falls into the latter category.
Recently, I received an email from Wendy. She has a 13-year-old daughter, and was researching information for keeping her safe while online. She passed along this great resource that I feel is useful for parents and for LEO’s as we speak to members of our communities daily. As a high-school Resource Officer, I know my kids can benefit from this information.
From a spiritual standpoint, 1 Peter 5:8 tells us, “Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” I believe one of the greatest attacks is upon our children, and it is our responsibility to protect them and teach them not only the things of God, but also how to stand against the “wiles of the devil.” Let’s guard the souls and lives of our children!
Be sure to check out The Concerned Parent’s Toolbox – 120 Tools and Tricks to Protect Your Kids from BackgroundChecks.org. There are general tips, links for internet education and safety, bullying prevention, and much more. Many thanks to Wendy for sharing!
