(NEWS CENTER) -- It's one of the first things we tell our children when we think they're old enough to understand-- "don't talk to strangers".

But did you know there are web sites set up specifically for that purpose.  They're supposed to be, mostly, for adults.  But kids use them too, and are all to often exposed to conversations, pictures and videos that would make any parent's jaw drop.

For more information on chat sites such as Omegle, and how to keep your kids safe online:
