Be Smart when It Comes To Protecting Your Children Online.

Here is what you can do.

Do you know what your child does online? Do you know who they are talking to? They are many dangers online for children, online predators are the most. What Children do not realize is that what you are talking to a stranger online you have no way of knowing if they are who they say they are.

For example, your 14 year old daughter thinks she is talking to a 15 year old boy called Aaron. He tells her he goes to school and what music he likes. They talk for a few weeks and get to know each other. Soon Aaron asks her if she would like to meet him, Your daughter excited about meeting this boy agrees.

However what your daughter doesn’t realize is that Aaron is actually a 41 year man named Mike whose intentions are not good. This sort of situation happens in real life all to often.

So how do go about protecting your children from these dangers? Well you could tell them they are not allowed to use a ChatRoom, but we all know if children want to do something then they will find a way to do it.

So why not educate your children about the dangers of talking to strangers online, ask them to be open and honest with you about who they are talking to. Remind them never to give out any personal details and never agree to meet anyone. However if they really want to go with them to make sure they are safe.
