This article reflects on current situation of online grooming and whether parents are au courant on the vulnerabilities of children towards online predators. Scholars behavior of children have highlighted that an au courant parent play vital role in building a bright society. To meet this aim, we interviewed 23 parents with children between 10-17 years old in urban areas. Our interviews were based on five key components: social media, unknown friend, sex education, private chat, and family time. The paper reveals the results of parents’ experiences, challenges, ignorance and vulnerabilities to online grooming. We suggest that parents and children need to be more vigilant about the predators online by increased awareness on online grooming.
