About R.E.A.L. Friends Don't

The R.E.A.L. Friends Don’t campaign increases awareness and educates parents and caregivers about online safety and empowers parents to protect their children from harmful content, grooming, or online exploitation.

Talking to children about online safety can – and should – be a regular part of life.

We are pleased to partner with @realfriendsdont to provide parents and caregivers with the tools and resources needed to keep their kids safe online #REALFriendsDont. The Youth Center of Texas is a proud supporter of the Real Friends Don’t campaign and keeping our kids safe online!

It’s time to get R.E.A.L. about online exploitation:

  • Regularly talk with your kids
  • Educate yourself on their technology
  • Act if something makes you or your child uncomfortable

Through a partnership with the Office of the Governor, OOAT, and the McCain Institute for International Leadership, R.E.A.L. Friends Don’t is launching digital billboards across the state of Texas to educate Texans about online safety and ensure parents and caregivers have the tools and resources to keep their children safe. The billboards, with English and Spanish messages, will be broadcast throughout Texas in more than 70 cities now through the end of the year.
