When we first send our children off to school, it’s not only a big step for them, but also for us as a parent. They have spent nearly their entire lives by our side with our protection and supervision to keep them safe. Then, they leave for school and we must trust that the outside world will protect them just as well as we would.
We worry a lot about the outside world. Some of it is valid, but the rest may be somewhat excessive. Funny enough, after spending so much time worrying about the adequacy of their supervision outside of our home, we tend to let our guard down at home. We so often assume that as soon as they get home, they are out of harm’s way.
This is generally true, with one important danger that we are exposed to every single day – the Internet.
We have put together a list of the most common questions parents have about their abilities to protect their children from the unknown threats of unfiltered Internet use.
