If you are a parent, you need to know about the Dark Web—and you need to buckle-up, because it’s a horrifying ride.
I first heard about the Dark Web from clients—rarely from kids who were on it, but from kids whose friends were talking about it or who were curious after hearing sensational stories about what happens there.
I decided to do my research because I want to keep my kids safe and I want you to be able to keep your kids safe.
What I discovered was terrifying beyond my wildest nightmares.
My reactions included fear of the dangers that were lurking well within the reach of my child and millions of other kids all over the world, astonishment that the Dark Web is real and that I knew nothing about it, and a sense of urgency to gather information and make a safety plan for my kids.
Here are 11 quick facts to bring you up to speed on the Dark Web:
There’s much more that I discovered, and it was too much for a blog post so I created an eBook that includes a Dark Web Parenting Plan. You'll know exactly what to look for and how to talk to your child about the dangers of the Dark Web.
This is a scary topic, but my goal is to empower you so you can empower your child. Shrugging off these potential dangers or remaining stuck in fear won’t keep your child safe, but being aware and informed will.
I am on a mission to get this eBook into the hands of as many parents as possible during the month of April. I’m giving it away for free, and while calling it a “gift” sounds contradictory because it’s such a dark topic—the ability to keep your child safe is truly the best gift in the world.
Please share this post with other parents so we can start a movement to protect all children with information and awareness. Together we can create a parenting community that is stronger than the lure of the Dark Web. Our children are counting on us!
