Learn the Importance of Monitoring Your Child’s Internet and Social Media Activities

If you children are using the Internet it is important as a parent to keep them as safe as possible. There are many dangers on the Internet that most kids don’t understand or care to understand because they are naive. They think that everyone on the Internet is who they say that they are and don’t feel as if anyone can really harm them, when in reality this is far from the truth. There are predators searching online for tweens and teens looking to mislead them down the wrong path. Also, many parents and older children don’t realize that everything that you do on the Internet is traceable and can be tracked down by your Internet Protocol Address, often referred to as an IP address.

Christy,

This was very informative thanks for sharing! I'm constantly warning my daughter of cyber predators. You're right children are naive and some are quick to fall for what I like to call the "okey doke". Parent's need to wise up and pay attention to what their kids are doing on the web just like kids need to wake-up and realize that they're being prayed upon. There will always be predators lurking online looking for children trying to gain their trust and get them to divulge valuable information such as their address, phone number, real names, etc. It's up to us as parents to keep our children safe in the REAL WORLD and the CYBER one!
