Message from Attorney General Eric Schmitt
As you know from your professional role, nearly every young person in Missouri has access to the Internet. Unfortunately, the benefit of that access also puts these teens and pre-teens at risk for the dangers that can lurk on the Internet.
I believe one way we can help keep children safe on the Internet is to give them the information they need to recognize and avoid dangers. That's why my office has created an Internet Safety program designed to help teens recognize the dangers of the Internet, identify situations to avoid, and offer advice on how to browse the internet safely. Included in this section is important information concerning social networking on sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and other popular venues students use regularly.
