The Internet Threats and control

Internet safety for children is a pressing issue in today’s society and parents should understand that their children are potentially in danger every time their children surf the internet.

Children have access to nearly any kind of content that they want. They can simply search and find any movies, songs, or articles that they want to have access to.

Many articles and videos on the internet romanticize habits like smoking, drinking, and substance abuse. These could affect the minds of adolescents, who may be attracted by these ideas and get involved in substance abuse and alcoholism.

Children could also be influenced by violent content in songs and movies and become violent and rebellious.

Therefore, parents must take certain steps to protect their young children from the dangers of the internet.

Adolescents who surf the internet need some kind of security or locks in order to protect them from these potential dangers.

Parental Control filters on Apple Computers

Using parental control, parents can block certain websites that may be harmful for their children to view. Parents should not only set parental control filters for their children’s electronic devices, but also physically monitor what their children watch.
