The internet makes it easy for someone to be anyone else in the world.
For your convenience, five reasons why internet use can be dangerous for children and teenagers are highlighted below.
1 – False Identities Are Easy to Create Making new friends online is easy and convenient, but it is much different than doing so in person. Because you can’t see who is at the other end of the computer.
For starters, examine your computer or your internet browser for free internet safety tools for parents.
You may also want to visit some of the websites that your child visits, just to see what they are subjecting themselves to.
