A very common problem many parents face nowadays is their children’s addiction to their devices or to cyber world. This was a problem that was practically non-existent when we were growing up. That’s why so many parents feel lost as to what to do.
A hidden problem that many parents may not be aware of is that with increased exposure to cyber world, the risk of encountering cyber dangers increases. These dangers could come in the form of online bullying OR access to objectionable sites OR exposure to online grooming. How do we keep our children safe from all that? How would we know if they have been exposed to it?
