Danielle
Danielle's daughter Kristin was 14 years old when she received her first computer. As a self-described overprotective mom, Danielle laid down some rules: No social networking sites or chats with strangers.

The rules didn't stop Kristin from beginning an online relationship with 27-year-old Kylie Ryan Bowers, who lured her to a motel room to have sex with her.

Kristin became clinically depressed and took her own life at the age of 16. Since her death, Danielle has made it her mission to help other parents keep their children safe on the Internet.
