“Parents are encouraged to keep lines of communication open about what their children are doing online and to encourage your child to let you know if they ever have a problem,” Stratford Police said in a press release.
“Help your child filter information and differentiate between fact and fiction. And most importantly, talk to your kids about the online danger of strangers and always know who they are communicating with online.”
