NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – District Attorney Ben David said he has been talking to local school students about the dangers of the Internet for over a decade. He continued that tradition at MCS Noble Middle School Thursday evening.
David and other speakers at the seminar wanted to keep parents informed about new forms of social media and how they can be potentially dangerous for adolescents.
"Parents make the best police and this is really about making sure they know what's going on under their own roof," said David.
Amy Maultsby, president of Noble's PTA, said she planned on talking with her children about the dangers of social media after the event.
"A lot of the harmful things we learned about tonight, they're not aware of," said Maultsby. "They're not aware that this could happen. It's very innocent to them so it's very important that we kind of communicate with one another about the dangers so that they can fully understand why as a parent, you're raising a red flag to it."
