Your child is your responsibility, so you owe it to them and yourself to make sure the online environment around them is safe.

Children will download anything free. They know that they won’t have to bother you about buying it for them. However, some of these items shouldn’t be downloaded because of potential threats to your computer.
If your child should download “forbidden freebies”, your computer is subject to being infected with spyware and malware.

What some kids might do bullying on net?

Cyberbullying and cyber predators rank among the greatest concerns when allowing children to get online. –  90% of teens on social media have ignored bullying if they’ve seen it, and one-third have been victims themselves. Children can be mocked in social media exchanges or on games their characters can be attacked.

*20% of the teenagers did sent or posted nude or semi-nude pictures or video of themselves.
*Also, 11% of young teen girls ages 13-16 did send or posted (semi) nude pictures or videos. 39% of all teenagers are sending or posting sexually suggestive messages.
*If a teenager sent or posted (semi) nude images of themselves 15 % of them say they have done so to someone they only knew online. 48 % of teenagers received such messages 71 % of teen girls and 67% of teen guys who have sent or posted sexually suggestive content say sent or posted this content to a boyfriend or girlfriend.

The stats of SEXTING is one threat, but what do you think of dangers as CYBER BULLYING, CYBER PREDATORS, GROOMING, IDENTY THEFT, PORN, DARK WEB, these are maybe bigger threats! And what do you think about SELF-HARM/SUICIDE, MENTAL HEALTH  (55% of tweens and 67% of teens engaged in conversations about depression). DRUGS/ALCOHOL (76% of tweens and 85% of teens engaged in conversations surrounding drugs/alcohol).

Teens use internet for everyday activities like keeping in touch with friends on social media, relaxing and doing schoolwork.

They are online to look for support for physical or mental health problems and experiment with different ways of expressing themselves. Because they’re online so much without your supervision, teenagers need to be able to identify acceptable and unacceptable online content independently. They also need to know how to behave respectfully online and avoid online risks.

  1. This article is so helpful. Nowadays, kids are exposed to so many dangers related to the use of internet. I must say that cyber-bullying is very frequent around teenagers. And all the side-effects like over eating, depression or even self-harming could be avoided if they are protected .

    Thank you
    Kind regards,

  2. Thank you so much for addressing this rampant issue in our society today, Lyne. While technology has provided its’ share of benefits (easy access to information and one another), we unfortunately have perverted individuals who want to prey on innocent children (I regularly check my city’s/state’s sexual predator registry). So many children, especially teenagers, want to find their identity and “fit in;” they will often cave in to peer pressure to avoid feeling alone (of course, they’re never TRULY alone). As parents and guardians, it’s more important than ever that we monitor our kids’ activities online and talk to them about the dangerous world that we live in. We want to keep our kids safe, and in order to give them the best social footing to stand on, we must act now. Great read! God bless you!

    1. Hi CN,
      I’m happy that you appreciate my post I agree Internet is a very big platform for kids especially teenager’s. Today some people on internet don’t have very good intention and it’s so easy to get in your computer today and there’s a lot of hackers and predators.
      Thank you for you comment
      Lyne
