Child Safety Online - Key Issues

This was in Safe India circle. I think this circle should also give views.

As access to internet via various gadgets has become part of our lives, it has made our children susceptible to cyber crimes. With easy access, childen at a fast pace are getting exposed to pornography, obscene games, information theft, cyber bullying, to getting lured to meeting a stranger.

With this post, we want you to list every issue related to the subject. Below is some additional information from a recent study on the subject.

According to the latest Norton Report, one in three Indian parents believe their child will be a victim of online bullying. Few other revelations from this report were:

1. 57% of Indian parents think children's online activities make the whole family vulnerable

2. 54% worry kids will give too much personal information to strangers and 57% think their kids will be lured into meeting a stranger in the outside world.

3. 51% parents fear that what their children will post today will come back to haunt them in the future.

4. Three in five Indian parents report their child has experienced a form of online crime. more

Never allow kids to surf matrimonial sites or red light zones on the web. Trust kids to follow your direction, but don't do so blindly. Kids will always test their boundaries. more
