    The dangers of social media: Protecting your children<p>{/p}

    According to the Beaumont Police Department, the two most common cyber crimes in the area are Unlawful Disclosure of Intimate Material and Online Solicitation of a Minor.

    One Nederland mom says, there was always concern in the back of her mind, but never an experience that would one day threaten her family. Her 11 year-old daughter was suddenly being preyed upon by an online solicitor claiming to be country superstar, Blake Shelton.

    Despite the measures taken to protect her, a stranger was able to manipulate her daughter by fronting as her favorite singer.

    Now, she shares her story with hopes that parents will take caution when allowing their children to actively use social media.
