INTERNET SAFETY BOOKS AND VIDEOS
Although the internet can be a valuable resource or a source of social pleasure
for your child or teen, it can be very dangerous. There are so many facets of
the internet that can put them at potential risk. Parents must monitor and
restrict their child's activities to keep them safe. The most serious problem
imaginable is a missing child or a molested child as a result of an online
predator. Although this is the problem parents are most frightened of there are
many other facets of the internet that can put them at risk.
Many child predators are no longer
snatching children on the streets, they
lure them with false identities on the
internet and the child meets them on
their own volition. Luring is illegal
and if you suspect someone is a threat
to your child's safety you should
contact law enforcement immediately.
Recently cyber bullying and online
fights have become a trend among teens.
Cyber bullying is the use of the
internet to harass another individual.
Lose of privacy is another problem. Many
"Spammers" use "phishing" to trick
people into giving up sensitive
information so they can exploit it.
There are also a ton of inappropriate
material for children on the internet
including pornography and violent and
hateful material. There are many
technologies that can get children into
trouble including social networking,
file sharing, chatting, forums,
newsgroups, email, instant messaging and
the list goes on. Many of these
technologies can be very complicated and
must be discussed with your child in an
age appropriate manner.
