Many children these days are using an Xbox, PlayStation, or computer to play games with strangers.

Police say predators are aware of this and have moved from the chat rooms to the gaming rooms to establish relationships with kids.

They say the predator will offer praise and tips to the gamer to win approval from the child and the relationship escalates from there.

Police say if there is wireless internet in your home, put a password on it so that your kids can’t get online to chat without you knowing about it.

Authorities also suggest putting passwords on your child’s hand-held gaming consoles like the PSP, iPod Touch and Nintendo DS. All have wi-fi connections.
