Family Watchdog

     I live in an area of the San Bernardino Mountains where three convicted sexual predators are actually living on my street. The irony of this is somewhat obvious; I have published a book, Lake of Shame, which describes my own experiences at the hands of a predator. How do I know where they live and what they look like? I receive emails from is a FREE website that not only shows you where these offenders live and work, but ALERTS you with an email when an offender moves into your area.I am writing about this wonderful service in hopes that someone out there may save a child's life by being informed. Remember, the service is FREE and provides conviction information, the offender's photo and address. If a sexual predator works near your home, it will alert you to his or her location, also.

     To be warned, in today's harsh world of child abductions, is half the battle won! Just a few weeks ago a 12 year-old girl was very nearly kidnapped on my street in the middle of the day.  Predators are getting more BOLD and aggressive, but which we need to be more diligent in watching for them and reporting suspicious activity. Try Family Watchdog--it could save your child's life.

      GarnetBird, I'm glad you did this hub story because sexural predators and online predators are everywhere now days. This sure is a topic which needs more attention. I did a true story recently about a 10 year old girl who was removed from as she claimed she was 20 years old and posted a full body shot of her picture, further, she said she was single. Check it out.
