Tips for Supervising Your Child's Digital Life - s post



We all know the horror stories of poorly managed or unsupervised internet use. Cyberbullying has taken lives and Facebook rants have ended careers. The problem for parents is knowing how to protect their children while still offering them all of the benefits that the digital age has to offer. Here are a few things to keep in mind when supervising your child's digital life:

Privacy Is A Myth

Social media posts last forever. If a post is innocuous, it will be seen by about 2 percent of followers, but if it isn't, it can go viral and be seen by thousands. Since most information is digitized, digging into a person’s life is relatively easy. If you want an eye-opening example, create a free Ancestry.com account. You will be amazed at the amount and depth of information these digital databases can offer. Understanding that privacy is hard to come by online, a simple rule of thumb for parents is to always have access to their child's digital information. One of the caveats of having a smartphone should be that the parents always get to know the passwords.

Talk About The Threats

What is perhaps more effective than a bunch of rules governing usage is to talk about proper internet practices; but don't just list the threats, especially because your child most likely already knows them. Discuss how to handle threats and when your child should get you involved. You should also broach the Echo Chamber Effect, a phenomenon that arises once you filter out those that disagree with you and listen only to those that share your views. By being validated only by those that agree, people began to develop more extremist views. This is something can lead to reckless and socially disengaging behaviors in a child.

Tech Vs. Tech

The good news is that there is technology to help you stay on top of your child’s digital use. For example, the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge has built-in parental controls so that you can have different accounts for different ages. It is also water resistant to prevent damage from the active lifestyle of a child. Microsoft has a family feature that lets you create an account for each family member and you will get a daily report emailed to you about their activity. If you use Norton as your antivirus software, it also comes with a parental control function. It's important to educate yourself on your options. PC Magazine has a good list of parental control apps and software for you to explore.

Listen


Digital supervision of your child should be dynamic. That is, the rules that you enforced when your child was 6 should not be the same when they are 14. Researchers and legislators are finding that rules are being set that are not taking into account the young person’s perspective. The best way to supervise your child without it becoming an issue of dominance is to get buy-in from your child. Develop a plan that works for both of you and update it periodically. Make digital use into a running conversation so that you can enjoy the benefits of this technology as a family.

  1. Very interesting thought of my day..We need to think more and guide more to them in the right way..By being approved just by those that concur, individuals started to grow more radical perspectives. This is something can prompt to careless and socially withdrawing practices in a youngster.Visit website here to learn good things to your children.

  4. Hello,

    Hey guys my wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.

  5. Excited my life is back My husband and I have been together for almost 11 years in October. The way we met wasn’t the best way since we both had relationships. We ended our relationships to be together (or so I thought we BOTH did). As soon as I ended up pregnant with our first baby, I find out he was cheating with his EX! My world went upside down. It was very hard for me since I was pregnant and hurt. Over the years I just kept forgiving him over and over again of not only multiple affairs, but of his accusations of me being unfaithful and disrespecting me. We now have 3 kids and I just completely felt neglected and felt low of myself. I had my own affair… It has not been easy for BOTH of us to overcome. Somehow over the last few weeks we have been working together to move on. We are now moving out of state. I love my husband and I am positive he loves me. I am going to try and show him this approach. Somehow we were already doing it! We have a better communication than we’ve had in years! We are learning how to speak calmly out feelings and concerns. It hasn’t been peachy, but I can see that we both are starting to respect eachother. We care for each other’s feelings. We have US a main priority. We aren’t taking counseling, but somehow we see that little by little we seem more comfortable with eachother. Sometimes we may notice how good it is going and may step back, but helping eachother out by holding and saying it’s ok to be happy again. I love my family. and my husband and i need to keep my marriage save with him from other women so i have to seek for a love spell to keep our marriage stronger so i contacted Dr happy who help me to keep my marriage save and secure from other women am very happy today coz my husband love me more and more like ever before, we are living as one big family again bless Dr happy for what he did to me and my husband if you need help contact him too he is real and 100% guarantee ok so email him at : happylovespell2@gmail.com call +2348133873774 about his service and web site: http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/
