Five Steps You Need to Take for Your
Children’s Safety to Put Your Mind at Ease
Protecting your children has been a top priority since the day they
were born. Telling your children “Don’t talk to strangers” or “Don’t
accept that lollipop” applies well to the real world but it seems a lot
more difficult when that rule is applied to the online world of
computers and the Internet. So what do you, as a parent, do and
what do you tell your children? How do you protect your child or
children from the online predators of today and other dangers such as
pornography and other questionable material you do not wish your
children to be reading or viewing? The dangers to children using the
Internet have only recently come to the forefront of concerns. One of
five children has been sexually solicited online; one of four children
has been sent pictures of naked people; the first death of a child
linked directly to an online predator was May 21, 2002. These
numbers can be a shock to some. So is it recommended to stop
children from using the Internet and the computer altogether? Well,
certainly that is one way but there are many benefits to your child
using the computer and the Internet.
