A new game, Roblox, is gaining popularity among children ages 8-12. Roblox allows children to “create adventures, play games, role play and learn with their friends.”
So what do parents need to be aware of? The game has a chat feature that allows predators to approach children online. It is also possible to use one’s avatar to demonstrate sexual positions and acts. We encourage parents to delete this game from all devices. We also encourage parents to discuss internet safety with your child.
Body Safety Education, available through our Family Resource Store, is a wonderful resource for parents wanting to learn more about internet safety and protecting their children from sexual abuse.
