Keeping families and children safe on the internet is a big priority for the parents of Door County and the State of Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Department of Justice's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the Department of Public Instruction launched a program called “Interact!” that parents can work through with their children. The program will give parents the resources to talk to their kids about internet safety. Nathan Drager, the president of Quantum PC in Sturgeon Bay, says it’s important to start educating kids at a very early age to talk about the dangers of the internet.
Drager added the earlier kids can recognize scams and dealing with predators will make them easier to avoid.
