Chat rooms/ any of them safe?

I just got internet recently in our house. I never had internet becouse where we lived they couldn't hook it up. So now they have an outside connection, but even before getting the internet I have heard if chat rooms being dangerios for teens as well as pre teens. When we got internet I told them NO CHAT ROOM! I have notice that cm has chat rooms also. I have went into those so now I feel like a hipicrit. Cm chats really do not seem unsafe but are their any chat room that you allow your kids into, or Is it best just to tell them no. I really don't trust other chat rooms but I also don't know much about them.

  • You can use parental controls to keep your kid's out of chat rooms. Most molesters and people intending kid's harm troll the chat rooms looking for gullible kid's. You NEVER know who your talking to in a chat room.

  • Chat rooms for teens - NOT SAFE. Chat rooms for you - fine here on Cafemom, not so fine other places. Not safe to MEET people in real life from Chat Rooms unless you can absolutely positively confirm they are who they say they are.
