It Is Time To Talk About Cybersecurity With Your Kids

In order to prevent children from becoming victims of various cyber crimes, parents should educate their children on the things they should pay attention to when chatting with strangers on a computer or mobile phone. The best way is to communicate face-to-face, and the sooner the better. As long as your child starts to use a mobile phone, iPad, or computer to surf the Internet, tell them what can and cannot be seen, set the “parental control” on the computer, and limit the children’s online content and time. Don’t wait until the child has become a “friend” with a stranger. Parents should let the child know their bottom line, understand which network behaviors are unacceptable, give the child an early lesson, and let the child take the initiative to stay away from the suspicious network. 

Parents should pay more attention to the feelings of their children, which will help to smooth the communication channel. A friend-like and equal communication method between you and your child may help a lot when you try to educate your kids about cybersecurity. Parents and guardians should set up the “parental control” on the child’s computer in order to closely monitor the child’s online movement. At the same time, as there are many kinds of speeches on the Internet, some racist, anti-human, unethical, violent, and even verbal attacks will have a great negative impact and harm on ignorant children.

Thus, parents should cultivate their correct values ​​and right and wrong ideas before their children go online, and let children learn how to judge the correctness and error of a website or some speeches, and consciously draw a line between bad websites and wrong speeches. Therefore, parents should cultivate their correct values ​​and teach them how to identify right and wrong. So that child would consciously stay away from bad websites and wrong speeches. In addition, parents also have to teach their children what is personal privacy, which is not open to others, and learns how to restrict strangers from receiving personal information on the Internet. If your children are the victims of cyber violence, tell them not to “control violence with violence”, but keep the evidence and blacklist the attackers. If the attackers continue to harass or physically attack the child, give the evidence to the school, or find a lawyer and seek justice through legal channels.
