This post is a part of the Parenting Challenges Series, featuring real mom problems and suggesting quick tips and solutions for them.
Internet delivers a lot of good opportunities for education and fun for children. The problem is that children can far too easily stumble upon age-inappropriate and harmful content that you, as a parent, would rather want them not to see. Even when watching only children videos on YouTube or searching something for completing their homework assignments, children are just several clicks away from adult or violent content. Not surprising that so many parents feel concerned with safety of children from age-inappropriate and harmful content.
Real Mom Problem:
"My children are becoming old enough to use the computer. Some of the things I have seen on the Internet are very disturbing and wrong. And some of the things I have seen done by children are even worse. How to protect my children from Internet garbage?"
- Figure out intentions. Determine the kind of things your children are likely to do online.
- Agree background rules. Choose which search engines, browsers, websites and apps are the best for your children to use.
- Set up parental controls. Activate your parental controls on every device your child uses including mobile phone, tablet and desktop PC in order to filter out web content your children shouldn’t see.
- Monitor viewed content. Review what your children are viewing and keep assured that they follow the agreed background rules and don’t come across harmful things online by accident.
- Keep talking. Teach your children avoid unsuitable content, and cope with it if they occasionally see it.
