Online Safety For Your Teenager

Sep 20, 2021, 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

The Internet does provide excellent sources of information and entertainment for children. Through internet and online sources, children get entertainment content with good takeaways, they are exposed to different places, cultures, and even languages. The Internet provides a wonderful exposure to numerous things that work well with theoretical knowledge that they acquire in schools. 

Social media allows children to stay connected with their friends across the globe and stay updated with educational trends and career possibilities. It is also a great place to interact and learn. Through platforms like blogs, forums, quora and many more, children are able to participate in online discussions, connect with like-minded peers and obtain valuable information

 

However, there is a Down-Side Of Media Exposure for your child. Ensuring that your child is online safe is important. Inappropriate content like  sexually explicit, violent and aggressive content can disturb young minds. 

Some simple things you can do to protect your child from internet safety risks include

  • You can create a family plan with your child’s inputs. This could cover things like screen-free areas in your house and what is OK and what is not.

  • Talk with your child about inappropriate content in an open and non-judgmental way

  • Stay in touch with what your child is doing online and how much time they’re spending online. 

  • Ask your child to ‘friend’ you on social media. 

  • Encourage and remind your child to explore and use the internet safely.

Hello Ma'am ! My daughter who has recently turned 13, likes to be awake late night and watch vidoes on phone. We have tried enough to stop her but nothing seems to help!! Though I know that she is not watching anything which is not appropriate for her age, still I am concerned. How do we explain to her?

Hello Doctor! My son is 16 years old. Of late I have noticed he has been watching videos with sexual content in his room . He keeps the doors of his room closed most of the time and even scolds his younger sibling if he enters the room without his permission . Is it just an age related change and all teenagers do this or do I need to talk to him about it ? I am confused. Kindly give your valuable inputs.

Madam what is the right age to discuss with our children, and forewarn them about such content available on social media. Will talking about this with my 11 year old boy and a 9 year old girl make them further curious to have a look at it or will it make them be cautious? Should I discuss this with them alone or together?

Hello Ma'am ! My wife passed away when my girl was 7 years old. It's been 4 years since then. I am not sure how do I talk to my girl about age related changes that might come about and internet safety with her. Will that affect our father-daughter bonding? Will she be shy after holding this discussion with me. I am not really confident about having this discussion with her. How can I go about it, please share your thoughts on this.
