Welcome To Our
Teddy Bear Says No Campaign



Women&Children
have joined force's with the increasing amount of web sites that are promoting Internet safety and placing your families photo's on the Internet.

May it be an online photo album, placing your children's photo in an online photo contest ,or even sending picture's of your children through an e-mail list.

We have only recently learned the dangers of placing your families photo out there on Internet for all to see.


Yes we are proud of our Children, and we want to show them off to everyone, but think of all the not so nice people who want to look at your photo's of your family.


One of the most dangerous of all is the Pedophile.  Men and women that prey on the innocence of children.

This topic is something that we as parents do not like to think about, but unfortunately it is something we Must be aware of.

Do not think this will never happen to me or my child. We all pray to god this will never happen, but you must educate yourself and your children to protect yourself from the evil that is in this world.


You may think you and your children are protected, and there is no harm in placing your families photo on the Internet but this is not so.


They enter your web site without you knowing, download your child photo and can recreate your child photo into something that is not so pure. They may even place your child's picture on their web site and offer them to other pedophile to use ,and distribute.


You may wonder how they can find your child's photo.
Very easy
They use regular search engines ,they visit family friendly web sites, knowing full well they will find picture's of your children there.

We at Women&Children Urge you to take matter's into your own hands and remove all your family photo's from your web site.

I have to say we were guilty and placed our family picture up for all to see ,but now that we know the dangers of doing so we have removed all our graphics, and are now helping to spread the word to say no to online photos.
We hope that now that you know the dangers, you will do the same.

There is a wide misconception among the public that child molesters were sexually abused as children. Millions of sexually abused children have grown up and have not become child molesters. It is just another lie used in our courts so molesters will get a lighter sentence
THERE IS NO EXCUSE WHEN IT COMES TO CHILD ABUSE!

Here are a few rules you can teach your child:

Stay away from people who call you near their car, even if they offer to take you somewhere exciting.

Teach Your Child
If someone tries to take you away, yell, "This person is not my father (or mother)" and scream.

If you get lost in a store, go to the checkout counter. Do not wander around on your own. And Never Leave the store.

I do not have to keep a secret from my parents, I will tell them about things or people that scare me. Let them know you will never get mad or upset if they have something to tell you.

No one should touch you in the parts covered by you are bathing suit, and you should not be asked to touch anyone there.

Do not let anyone take your picture without permission from your parents or teacher.

When I leave the house, I will always tell my parents who I am with and where I am going.


Tell your children not to trust strangers. Educate them about what to do if someone tries to entice them into a vehicle or home, and teach them not to take anything from strangers unless you give your approval.

Have your children memorize your home and office telephone number. Teach them how to reach you by phone



Teach your child it is ok to say no to an adult ,especially if they do not like what they are saying or doing.
