Today, the Internet undoubtedly plays a central role in the educational and social development of children. There are lots of positive aspects for them: they can access high quality encyclopedic knowledge in a few clicks, keep in touch with friends and family via popular social platforms, play online educational games or share their homework with classmates. Plus, the possibilities for entertainment online are nearly endless.
From a parental perspective, it’s important to educate yourself to the potential advantages offered by Internet and to understand the dangers brought by uncontrolled usage.
While browsing, kids can very easily stumble upon content intended strictly for adults, and face sexual contents, extreme violence videos, online gambling advertisements, Blogs promoting anorexia and so on. They can encounter sexual predators in chartrooms or be exposed to nudity on webcam chats with strangers. Their photos, videos and personal details publicly displayed on social media accounts can be used to track them to their school and to blackmail them.
Children are innocent, curious and trusting. They can easily get in trouble online, and if parents are not aware of the situation and can’t protect them, it can be dangerous for their mental and physical health.
We believe that children should be able to spend time browsing the Internet at leisure, without the risk of being exposed at pornography or drugs related content. And it can be done with the appropriate parental control software installed on your computer, combined with parental supervision.
