Online Landmines - What Parents Can Do To Make It Safer


Parenting has never been easy. Every generation has “their thing,” but parents today are faced with challenges no generation has ever faced: raising children who have spent their entire lives immersed in the Internet and social media.

This is both a blessing and a curse for parents. On the one hand, online exploration opens a world of possibilities for children, expanding their horizons and exposing them to different cultures and ways of life, and social media allows for family bonding from coast-to-coast among other joys. Then, on the other hand, children can just as easily be exposed to a world of dangers at the click of a button. And to complicate matters even more, now children of all ages have access to online content at home, on gaming systems or just about anywhere they can get a signal for their mobile device. 

Here we take a look at the threats and the safeguards that make a virtually impossible task manageable. The big bad Internet can be tamed, and your kids can be kept safe.
