Internet Safety for Your Child, Post Holiday Season

SHAILA on January 22, 2013

Santa must have handed down plenty of tablets and other electronic gadgets to children. Parents have scoured the internet to such an extent prior to the last shopping season that, Laurie Schacht, chief executive and president of Adventure Publishing, which brings out the Toy Insider Hot 20 list commented, "It's going to be the war of the tablets."

Children are increasingly whipping out their tablets, not to mention their notebooks and smart phones, to access the internet. In a revelation by Nielsen, 58% of children in the age group of 13-17 own a smart phone, compared to just 36% a year ago.  Massachusetts Aggression Reduction Centre’s findings indicated 19% of third graders have a cell phone and 90% of them play online games. In such a scenario, computer experts urge parents to keep their children safe on the internet.

Give Your Children a Safe Internet Experience

Speaking about child internet safety, there’s one option that suits all. Discuss the online do’s and don’ts with your children. Let your children know that posting photographs on social media, sending emails, texting, anything that leaves their device, is up for public scrutiny.  

Impulsive teens email or upload pictures of themselves which they soon regret. Deleting it rarely helps, for 88% of such regrettable photographs end up in the wrong hands. Educate your children; ignorance is the mother of mistakes.  

Providing internet safety does not work on any standalone approach. Discussion, limiting internet time, trying out parental control options, everything works. And, of course, there is Mobicip, which works across multiple mobile devices protecting children of different age groups within the family.
