The majority of people can make use of the internet without limitation of time and distance as long as they have internet gadgets. Both parents and children use Internet gadgets without limitation.

The parents must make sure that what children are getting from the internet is beneficial to them. Listed below are some of the hazards that can affect children from the internet.

When the internet is not controlled, they may see things they were not supposed to see which can steal their children. When ideas are being posted in the media, most of the time it does not limit the audience to whom it is being displayed. When children are using online platforms such as Google, Facebook or Twitter they may be exposed to content such as pornography or drugs that may ruin their innocence. At times, the children may be innocent, but because of the peer pressure they may be forced to join illegal groups that may be dangerous to them. Children who use internet gadgets without any control from their parents may fall victims of the dangers without their parents’ awareness.

Children can be severely humiliated and their self-esteem ruined when using the internet. Children like to share content such as photos with one another or even post them on social media. Without proper regulation on who can say, anyone, can share their views of what they think about what is displayed. At times, some of their peers may bully them by negative comments posted which can stress up children. Because children are not psychologically mature, parents should help to keep them away from such disgrace. If it is not checked in time, a child can be depressed to the extent of taking extreme measures to deal with their embarrassment.

Children can also get easily addicted to the use of the internet which is too risky. Children who are addicted to being online may not be able to concentrate on anything else as they will be thinking of the possible post they may have missed. Children that have been addicted to the internet, may be inactive and withdraw from other vital events such as school. It is, therefore, the parents’ duty to ensure that a child does not fall a victim of internet addiction. Also, if the child is so focused on online, they may miss significant opportunities in their life that they cannot recover again because of their failure to concentrate on things that mattered. A wise parent will control the use of the Internet among their children to protect them from the risks mentioned above.
