With today's generation growing up with the Internet, parents have one more thing to worry about. Dangers abound online, and even savvy children may not be prepared. Fortunately, there are things that parents can do to reduce the danger to their children. In this article, we look at a number of methods, and review a program widely considered to be the best in its class for helping parents tackle this intimidating task.
Keeping Kids Safe Online?
In most American households, owning a computer and having Internet access has become as commonplace as having a refrigerator in the kitchen or a television in the family room. It can easily be argued that younger generations growing up today are more technologically advanced than ever before.
It is not uncommon to find that children as young as eleven and twelve years old have e-mail addresses and are capable of communicating online via chat rooms or instant messaging. The idea that their children have access to an amazing amount of educational information online may seem ideal for many parents, but having technologically savvy children is a double-edged sword.
Along with all the information they could ever want concerning science, English and social studies, there are also social networking sites likeFacebookandMyspaceas well as millions of chat rooms that can be accessed day or night and free of charge. Though your childís browsing may be innocent enough, itís very important to be aware of the sites they visit and with whom they communicate. Aside from the possibility that your children may be talking to strangers online and revealing personal information about themselves, there are also countless websites not appropriate for children that can be accessed with the simple click of a mouse.
Though your child may feel itís invasive, itís important that you monitor their Internet use while at home and prohibit it outside the home if it is going to be used without adult supervision. Itís important to understand that the Internet is completely unlike other mediums that older generations have grown up on, such as the radio and television.
