This comic book is based on a true case submitted to Cybertip.ca – Canada’s national tipline to report the online sexual exploitation of children. It tells the story of a young girl who is being manipulated by an individual she meets online while playing a game. This person asks her to send increasingly personal information and pictures, leaving Zoe and Molly unsure how to respond. It reinforces the safety strategy ‘If asked to share and your parents aren’t aware, say no!
Once the child’s read the story, they can complete the following activities (Internet access is required):
- A Zoe and Molly Online quiz
- A ‘What’s Weird?’ activity
- An ‘Avatar’ activity, where your child can create and accessorize a character and write their own ending to the story.
