We all want the best for our child. Best education, best upbringing and the utmost safety possible. We go to lengths to ensure safety for our child, even if it means being with them 24/7. But how sure are you about their online safety? What do you know about their online behavior? What they are watching? Or who have they befriended on social media channels?
A teenager is likely to check his/her social media profile about 100 times a day according to a study. The next generation is all about social media, online interactions and online consumption of content. They are savvier than their parents when it comes to online activity. The kind of exposure that internet has the potential to offer is unparalleled but it also has a dark side.
15 percent of teens, according to a survey, have stated that they received inappropriate pictures online which are likely to elevate the stress level by 50%. About 43 percent of kids get bullied online and 1 out of 4 has admitted being bullied more than once. And only 1 in 10 reports any of such activities to their parents. Kids can easily fall victim to cyber bullying, identity theft, or cyber predators. A pedophile can conveniently brainwash a kid and can cause an irreversible harm.
Would you happen to know if your child has befriended a cyber bully or cyber criminal online? Parents usually have little or no knowledge about what their kid is doing online or who he is chatting with. Considering the facts, a parent’s control is ever more crucial when it comes to a child spending time on the web. Parents must prevent their kid from using a screen profile or rendering personal information to anyone they have met online.
