The "Safe Surfin Foundation" was created in 2000 in Bedford, Virginia.
"It teaches not only the community, but the parents and the children how to properly surf the internet," says the Administrator of the Warren County Moose Lodge, Ben Auterback.
Auterback says the risk of having an online predator could be growing because of how easy it is to access the internet. "They're not only at school now, they're not only at home, but they're also on their phones on the internet. It's all around us."
Warren County Sheriff McEathron says the Sheriff's Office has had a few cases in Warren County involving an online child predator. "I don't think it's ever too early to educate your children on internet safety. If they have a cell phone and they have data, then they have the accessibility. You always want to educate them inside the home and outside the home."
He says like the "Safe Surfin Foundation," the Sheriff's Office has advice when it comes to the web. "We always like to encourage, to make sure that they don't do things and don't give private information, personal information out. That is always dangerous."
For example, you should never give out your bank account information or anything that could lead someone to find you.
"You don't want to put anything on the internet about where you're going to be or when you are going to be,” says McEathron.
