Protect Your Child From the Sex Offender Near Their School Bus Stop

August 24, 2009 at 11:31 am Leave a comment

In Kentucky, recently, a man found out that his child was waiting at a bus stop every morning that was right near the home of a registered sex offender. The man raised his concerns to the public school district and the stop was eventually moved, but the incident raises some questions about the danger of sex offenders living near your home or in your neighborhood.

First of all, I’m sure the man was grateful for the sex offender information in his areas, whether it was through a state sex offender registry or through CrimeReports.com. Making sex offender information available to parents makes parents feel safer, knowing that they can get the information they need to make decision regarding their family’s safety.

However, knowing where a sex offender lives in only part of keeping your children safe from predators. The truth of the matter is that most sex offenders are family friends or related to their victims. A recent article published by eAdvocate points out some warning signs for parents.

The article warns, “If a family member or friend is taking an unusual interest in a particular child or children in the household–there should be a red flag to other family members to watch for signs of sexual abuse.” You can read more about warning signs of sexual abuse and predators’ silencing tactics by reading the entire article here.
