A little girl goes to a friend's home to play. Instead of playing with dolls, the two girls hide away in the closet and watch hard-core porn on the family's iPad. Is the fact that the iPad was not password-protected the biggest mistake parents make?
Nope. Smart parents understand that the Internet is a dangerous place for kids. To protect their children's developing minds, they install filters on their computers and password protect mobile devices. They may even reach out to other parents to make sure they are doing the same.

Kids use a lot of different websites and products that can sometimes be hard to keep up with. Many of these websites have good, useful things on them. However, these same websites can have unwanted content such as pornography. Here are a few ways to activate filters on some of the most popular websites, apps and devices.

With various teaching and learning resources available on the Internet, it's not uncommon for schools to introduce tablets in the classroom. Individual access to tablets allows students to learn independent skills and have a more structured, academic practice.
If your school is going to introduce- or has already introduced- tablets to your students, consider setting some guidelines. The positive aspects of using tablets can be magnified if the negative ones are avoided.

We have social media to thank for keeping us in touch with old (and new) friends. We can also thank social media for a score of explicit and mindless material added to our daily lives. Fortunately, we don't always have to take the good with the bad.
Apply these tips if you want to block a friend's content, yet still remain friends with them.

A growing concern that many parents often experience is the concern that their child may be bullied online, or "cyberbullied". Do you know if your child is being cyberbullied? Do you have any idea how you might know? Would you know if your child is bullying others online?
In a current survey, 44% of parents said they were concerned that their child could be a cyberbully. Much of this concern has been raised largely due to the rise of cyberbullying cases in the news.
