School kids may be sleeping in this week, now that most are on Spring Break; but we have advice for parents to make sure everyone stays safe while having a bit more "idle time."
Kelly Richard with the Redmond School District says with kids heavy use of social media, one valuable tip will keep your child safe and even your home: don't tell where you are.
"They should be very careful about reveling their location. Especially during a time of year when there's a lot of students out and about. And just, not a lot of adults to watch over them. So be careful about where your student is checking in or if they're using instagram or Foursquare or some sort of social media that's revealing their location."
Richards says predators know when and where spring breaks are happening, and that's when the prey on students.
Also experts say to have a talk with your kids about who can or can't be at your house while your child is home alone while you're at work.
