Your Child And The Internet: What Parents Should Know And Do In Helping Their Children Online (#2)

When you are talking of the internet, some children know more than their parents. If care is not taken, your child will get exposed to wrong things online.

Let us consider some of the online activities that children are attracted to and their potential dangers.

» EMAILS:
Emails are written messages sent online.
One of the dangers is that some spam messages may have a link to unsolicited sites with adult contents, gambling, etc.

» WEBSITES:
Millions of sites exist to provide information for everyone but some are not for your children to visit due to their contents. Some websites feature explicit sex, immoralites and other dangerous acts.

» ONLINE SOCIAL NETWORKS:
The social networking sites enhance people to express their identity, chat and meet new friends.
Personal information posted on social network sites can be exploited by fraudsters and sexual predators. Some even give their private information to strangers via this. Why?

As parents, what can you do to protect your children from online dangers?
