In this article the danger for children using the internet are being discussed. Almost every child has some sort of internet access in these days. This is possible because of the fast technology advancement of the last couple of years, but also comes with a lot of potentials risks for the youth. Beneath are some hard facts listed about such risks as children getting access to pornography:
Research and criminal investigations units estimate that everyday around 60.000 pedophiliac people look for children online with the intention to gain trust through conversations and starting friendships with the hope of meeting the children face to face in real life.
The most important question parents get asked when their own child is getting involved in a situation like this how they could not prevent this. In most cases the answer is quite simple and sad: they just didn’t know about this. Some parents just don’t know which risks children face in the internet and what they can do to effectively to protect their children from such risks. When parents just could secretly read some of the chat conversations when they feel that their children are behaving in a weird way or when they suspect anything, a lot of children could be protected.
So are parents the ones that need to be blamed in this situation? In my personal opinion, a lot of parents already know what kind of dangers and risks could potentially harm their children and are already talking about this kind of topic with them in advance proactively. But it turns out that education and knowledge about this topic is not enough at this cause. Especially children with less life experience can make false decisions that lead to tragic events and might affect them the rest of their life – from a physical point of view as well as from a psychological one.
We live in a fast-moving society where everyone is busy and often times children also have their own computer to handle their school work and to play games in their free time. Parents usually don’t have the time or possibility to follow up every move their child is doing on the internet side by side in person. Are they using pornografic websites or are they visiting illegal sites where they can download software that they don’t have the legal right to use. These downloads can lead to lawsuits that cost several thousands of USD because they are hurting personal rights.
The most important questions at this point is: How can parents react to these dangers while still giving their children enough free space so they can develop themselves? Is education and having an open talk with them sufficient? Probably not!
The easiest way to stop this is just to stop your children being able to access the internet via their cellphone or computer. This one is probably not practical though because a lot of the learning necessary for school education is based on internet research an being able to gather information fast. Also when parents are shutting down the internet access on the computer of their kids they probably find a way to access anyway (public library, friends, etc.).
What needs to be done is to stop internet usage without parental supervision or control. What we need to consider here is that the children’s’ knowledge in IT programs is in most cases more advanced that the one of their parents. So an easy check of their web browser history might not be sufficient to protect them.
