As a fellow parent, I took great pride in being attentive and keeping a watchful
eye on my children, regardless of age.
I didn’t realize how ignorant I was until my 15 year old, after 3 days of having
a cell phone decided he no longer appreciated the rule of having to hand it over
at 10pm on school nights. This prompted suspicion which was substantiated when I
powered up my son’s phone to receive a message saying: "OK, goodnight babe" from
a Virginia area code. I immediately called the number, and realized I was dealing
with a potential predator based on a generic voicemail (non- gender). I left a mother’s
heartfelt message suggesting further action if there were any further contact with
My son thought he was conversing with a 30 year old woman he met on World of Warcraft®.
Through investigation, unbeknownst to him, he was in fact conversing with a male.
God only knows how old the man was. After my heartfelt message, the predator decided
to cancel his cell phone service which only further suggested his intent to harm
my child. This prompted my interviews with law enforcement where I learned what
I experienced is nothing compared to the dangers endured by children everyday.
