Are Your Kids in Danger on the Net?

Different people have different answers to this question. For some, the biggest risk is that their kid finds material that offends their philosophical or religious beliefs. For some, there is risk that the kid meets up with people who are a bad influence on the kid, whether a “bad influence” is defined as someone who will hurt them physically, or just expose them to new and different ideas.

Just as in any other venue where our kids interact, there is both truth and fable about the dangers to kids on the Internet. Some people on the Net are not nice. There is material that would probably be offensive to many of us. There are temptations and lures. At the same time, there is an overwhelmingly high number of really good things for kids to use, play with, study, and enjoy on the Net. As with any other venue, the risk to your kids lies largely in how you and they use it.
