This is the digital age where information is at everybody’s fingertips. Even young children these days have access to the internet via smartphones and tablets. They need to be made aware of the dangers of the internet and taught how to protect themselves from various online threats.
The internet is used by children as young as 5-year-olds these days. Kids go online to play games, watch movies or cartoons, interact with their peers on social media, and to do research for homework assignments or school projects. However, they may not be aware of the various dangers of the internet. Children have to be educated about online threats and internet safety. Speaking openly with them is very important. Parental supervision is also essential.
