Let’s face it, the world is very different than it was 30, 20, or even 10 years ago. The emergence of the Internet and accessibility of mobile devices has changed the way that children interact with each other and the world.
The dangers that kids face today while online are new to most parents, and require parents to be “digital” parents alongside the role of “real world” parents. Some new threats that most of parents never faced as children include:
Parents need to be aware of these threats and vigilant in ensuring that these things don’t create a negative impact in the lives of their children. Below are 4 simple suggestions to help parents in the digital world.
