The hourlong seminar was prompted by a recent local sexual predator case.
Jackson Roland Westermeyer, 18, is accused of exchanging lewd photos and soliciting sex from minors in Huntington Beach and elsewhere. Steve Fong said. To prevent additional teens from becoming victims, authorities discussed the types of social media platforms children are using nowadays and told parents they should keep up with the latest trends. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Skype have become household names over the past five years, but police told parents to keep an eye out for up-and-coming smartphone applications like Kik Messenger and Snapchat.
Additionally, authorities said parents should be aware of online computer games that allow their children to chat with others they are competing with. Police played a video of a news story fromwhen a man from Kelseyville, Calif. Authorities from Utah stopped the girl from making the trip, and the suspect, a year-old man who had posed as a male teenager, was arrested; he eventually pleaded guilty to coercion and enticement for illegal sexual activity, according to a press statement from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Huntington Beach detectives mentioned a similar incident that occurred locally inwhen a man from San Pedro was accused of sexually assaulting a female teenager he met on the social media website Myspace. Trent Tunstall about the case from Utah.
Huntington Beach Neighborhood Watch board member Tony Bresse, a software engineer, said teaching children how to use social media responsibly is similar to teaching them how to ride a bicycle or drive a car. Bresse, 53, said denying teens the use of social media could be detrimental and that it is better to work with them to develop the right habits.
He said parents should create a list of actions their children should or should not take when interacting with people online. He added that parents should encourage their children to come up with their own list as well.
