Protect Your Children From Online Predators

Learn how you can protect your kids from online predators. About 20 percent of all children online will be solicited by a predator. Tomorrow night, the Texas attorney general is hosting a Town Hall meeting in Tyler on Cyber crimes.

"Parents need to know there are so many ways that predators are trying to lurk and find their children. There's instant messaging. There are blogs. There are chat rooms. New, very hot spaces like MySpace.com. Places that children frequent, very often are also cruised by child predators," said Abbott.

The Cyber Crimes Town Hall Meeting is being held tomorrow night at 6:30. It's at the Wise Auditorium on the TJC campus.
