The Internet is dangerous
Where were Little Red Riding Hood's parents? The same logic that gave Little Red her name probably sent her out through the wolf infested forest, alone, with a basket full of smelly food to Grandma's house. Of course, you would never send your child out into the spooky woods alone. But, when was the last time you let your child use the Internet without you? When was the last time you ventured out there unprotected and alone?
Luckily, Little Red was saved by the lumberjack. For your safety and the safety of your family you may want to brush up on your Internet lumberjack skills a bit. One good way to do that is to check out the Internet safety podcast. If you prefer your information in text form or you're already a seasoned veteran lumberjack with something to contribute head over to the Internet safety wiki. These are resources that can help keep Little Red Riding Hood from getting close enough to the wolf to ask him stupid questions.
