Helping safeguard families against child predators, Warren County Schools is offering the iGuardian seminar at Warren County Middle School auditorium Tuesday night.The event, which is free of charge and will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., will provide parents, guardians, and concerned citizens with information about the online dangers children face every time they log on to the Internet. The event is designed for adults.“We want to help parents become aware of those hidden dangers students can experience,” said Federal Programs director Vickie Dodd, noting even seemingly safe apps on iPhones can lead to potentially dangerous situations. “This program will provide community members information about those dangerous environments and how to stay safe online.”Project iGuardian aims to counter the disturbing trend that many online child predators are able to find victims online because children are not aware of how dangerous online environments can be.
