As parents, grandparents and
guardians, we are reminded constantly to help our children enjoy the pleasures
and excitement of the Internet in safety.
My own grandchildren learned how to boot up their family
computers at a very early age. For the youngest of
them, it was simply a matter of watching their older sisters and brothers as
they chatted online with their friends, worked on their school lessons, and
explored the mysteries of the cyber universe.
Their parents had the responsibility of teaching Internet Safety guidelines,
often while learning of the dangers themselves.
Starting the young ones off safely is relatively easy.
Peer pressure and natural curiosity create a much
greater challenge for protecting our mid-teen and teenagers
from being entrapped by their curiosity and
Concerned parents often
ask how best to alert their kids to the dangers of file sharing, hidden spyware
in email attachments, downloading, identity theft, and more.
Informed parents recognize that the Internet provides an exciting
and learning experiences for their children. Teaching safety, and learning
together is a wonderful way for any family to enjoy it.
We'd love to learn how you taught your children to be cautious and careful, and how to avoid
the threats from online scammers and pedophiles when they were learning to surf
and play games on their computers, digi-pads and smartphones.
Your experiences and successes can help a lot of us other parents and grandparents.
Thanks for sharing...
