Child abuse and technology. It’s no secret that child abuse and technology have become an integral part of our daily lives. From cell phones to video games, iPods to computer monitors, there are many items that can make child abuse easier or help control their abuser. But with so many electronic devices on the market today, how can we be sure that we don’t accidentally buy something that could harm our children?
The internet is a great example of technology that benefits more than just children using it. It is also potentially dangerous. While some parents may not realize it, the internet is full of content that is not suitable for children of all ages.
In particular, websites specifically aimed at teenagers and young adults contain some sexually suggestive images and messages. Other websites post photos of young women in bikinis and low-cut tops.
For parents looking to keep their kids safe online, it’s especially important to know how their kids interact with the Internet. For example, do they spend a lot of time on sites that only offer adult content?
Can they provide a password to the computer so they can safely access secure image sites? And if they are allowed to access certain websites without any password protection, will that website allow them to immediately contact others?
To prevent child abuse, parents need to take some proactive steps before a child reaches adulthood. The first step is to ensure that each child has a computer that is kept in a safe environment, such as a child prevention room in the home or office.
Parents should ensure that each family member uses the computer regularly and does not leave it alone for long periods of time. Children should never play games or chat on the Internet with graphic depictions of sexual acts.
Children also never have to leave the safety of their bedroom when accessing the internet. Technology is not enough to protect them from predators and they need to feel safe in their own home.
Online predators often look to Internet chat rooms to dig deeper into the world they’re about to enter as well as personal information such as their real name, address, email address, and phone number. If they suspect their parents are not being faithful to them, they may even try to confront them by sending threatening or threatening messages or by email or text.
