This is what I found on GOODMORNINGAMERICA.COM:

Tuesday, Feb. 11, is Safer Internet Day, a day to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones. The day aims to raise awareness of emerging online issues that reflect current concerns.

And while most parents know what LOL and TTYL stand for, it turns out there’s a lengthy list of other, lesser-known-to-adults acronyms that child predators use to communicate with kids.

Here is the list, provided by experts at the Child Rescue Coalition, “an organization that aims to protect all children from sexual exploitation,” according to GMA:

“It’s also important to note that kids may be texting on apps like KIK and WhatsApp that aren’t easily trackable,” Child Rescue Coalition reports. “Make sure to have open conversations with your children about what rules you want to set, and clearly let them know that you will check their phone and all the apps that they use.”
