Norristown, Pa. (AP) - "Middle school students in on suburban Philadelphia county are going to get lessons in how to spot predators while surfing the Internet...More than two dozen middle schools in Montgomery County will be the first in the area to take part in a new safety program by playing an interactive game called "Missing"...It is designed to teach the youngsters how to protect themselves by trying to find a teenager who has been abducted.".... This is a great idea but how long will it take for the predators to undo this and be able to outsmart them?

they have training classes of how to get away from someone trying to grab them but also is a good idea for kids to know poeple lie on the internet to get them . turn them in to the police as soon as they know this might help some!
