Many Internet sites show images that are of an extreme, violent and pedophiliac nature. Once found, such sites can expose a child to photos, videos and stories of a highly indecent and often shocking nature. If the parent does not in some way limit how the child can use the Internet, he or she is then able to freely download as many files as he/she likes and save them onto disk, thereby hiding from parents what has been viewed.
There are further grounds for parents to limit the Internet
Chat sites are particularly common amongst children, as they offer previously unparalleled opportunities to communicate in real time with people from all corners of the globe.
However, not all of these people are benign. Many people use chat sites to seduce children and adolescents. In fact one in five children who use chat rooms have been approached over the Internet by pedophiles.
With unlimited access, there are unlimited opportunities for a child to be exposed to web sites containing sexual imagery, violence, hostility, extremism and hate in a way that was impossible before the Internet came into common use, and therefore it is vital that parents take control of, and in some way limit their child's use of the Internet.
To limit the Internet
use of their child, many parents have verbal agreements concerning the times in which they can use the home computer. This can be as effective as your children are disciplined. If, however, their word is not likely to be enough, especially when you are away from the home, then you can limit Internet use by employing commercially available computer control software such as Chronoger
, you can limit the amount of time that your children can use the Internet by scheduling the time that it can be accessed on a weekly timetable. This means that even if you are out your children will not be able to access the Internet against your will.
