Keep close tabs on your children in regards to their internet activity and communications. Leaving a child alone to explore the Internet is like setting him or her down in the middle of a city whose population consists of nothing but the most horrid reflections of humanity and leaving.
Unfortunately, for the vulnerable and naïve, the internet harbors a large number of suspect individuals who, for whatever reason, find great pleasure in attempting to destroy others while under the incorrect assumption of complete anonymity.
Plenty of crazy smart people succeeded in life well before all of our fancy devices showed up so don’t worry that your child is going to suffer intellectually by having limitations on internet usage.
Discuss the dangers of the internet world with your children just as you discuss the dangers of the non-internet world with them so they go in with their guard up and monitor their usage so your children can grow up to be fabulous contributors to the world:)
