Children are particularly vulnerable to sex offenders. Open communication between parents and children is vital to family safety. If a picture is available from the local law enforcement's website, show it to your family. In general terms, tell your children that this person has hurt someone before. Explain to them that they should stay away from this individual. Avoid scary details. The purpose behind community notification is to reduce the chance of future victimization by better informing the public.
