From today, we are starting a 4 post series on Digital Parenting & Internet Safety for kids. Subscribe to our updates to receive the series in your email.
Today’s kids are digital kids, they are digital pros and most of them learn to operate a smartphone or a tablet before they can learn the alphabet. Our kids don’t know about life without internet and life without gadgets is something they will never know. However as parents it is our job to parent our digital kids in a way that they learn technology and use it for good but also learn about .
Gone are the days when you could simply confiscate their gadgets and hope that they were safe. Kids today are issued Ipads and laptops from schools for their homework so how can you take those away?
According to various studies on Internet safety among kids, here’s some disturbing data
- 1 in 4 kids are exposed to online risks
- 70% Of Kids receive messages from strangers
- 40% of these kids reply to these strangers
- Less than 20% will tell an adult about any inappropriate content or strangers on internet
So even though you might think that your kids are well-informed about internet safety and would always come to you for help regarding something inappropriate, it may not be true. Imagine, if your 9 year old wanted to cross the busy roads with speeding cars on his/her own, won’t you still keep an eye over them, ready to jump in, the moment they are at danger.
Then why should it be any different with the Internet highways which are definitely much more dangerous with paedophiles, bullies, impostors and so many other bad elements lurking at every corner.
