Katie Reynolds, an administrator at Dayton Christian said a lot of protecting children is about talking with them about the dangers that are present.
It's easy to become overwhelmed by the amount of information that's in the public domain, she said, but healthy and regular communication often can be among the best safety measures.
"Honestly I think it's almost impossible to put a total hold on it, but you have to do the best you can," she said.
