Caroline Knorr from Common Sense Media has compiled a very useful list of myths (and truths).
- Social media turns kids into cyberbullies.
- Teaching kids not to talk to strangers is the best way to keep them safe online.
- Kids act worse online.
- It’s dangerous to post pictures of your kids online.
- Parental controls are the best way to monitor my kids’ online activities.
For the truths, read full article here. That last one is a surprise coming from us. After all, Mobicip offers one of the most popular parental controls for smartphones, tablets and laptops. In Caroline's words, "By all means, use parental controls to help prevent exposure to age-inappropriate material and to manage time limits. But don't think they get you off the hook. Continue to discuss responsible, respectful online behavior, set rules and consequences for misbehavior, and train your kid to manage his or her own usage." We agree!
