What is this site for?2016-10-12T16:32:36-04:00

CarefulParents.com was created as the first-ever public website designed to allow parents to share information with other parents regarding dangers or threats  to our children. It was the idea of it’s founder, John Michels, who first learned of the Slender Man after a horrible stabbing perpetrated by young girls against another young girl in Wisconsin.

John envisioned a website that would enable parents to Alert! other parents about dangerous activities, behaviors, apps or anything that represents a threat to children.

It is the goal of CarefulParents.com to be the parent community where parents write the content and share it for all parents to see and take action for the safety of their children.
