Why and How to Make Your Child Cyber Ready??
Here we will throw light on the importance of making today’s generation prepared for the internet. We need to know if our children are Cyber Ready.
Nowadays, children hardly require guidance for using smart gadgets. When it comes to the internet they can even teach us a thing or two. No matter how user-friendly the internet is, there are some safety measures that must be followed while,
- Browsing the internet
- Interacting with someone online
- Engaging in an online activity
Just like we make children accustomed to operating in the offline or the physical world, it is the parent’s responsibility to ensure that the child is made aware of and habitual to carry oneself in the online or virtual space.
This is of utmost importance as the web-world co-exists with us and our children are exposed to it right from the moment they are born. (Remember, the selfie taken to announce your baby’s arrival on WhatsApp & Instagram?)
Here are a few important internet safety and readiness tips that you must teach your child:
While chatting online, teach your child to never share their personal information, including name, phone number, address, school name and photo.
Tell your child that it can be dangerous to meet someone you have only known or spoken to online and that they should inform their parent, teacher or caregiver if somebody approaches him/her with such a request.
The child should know that he/she should not accept emails or messages from strangers. Also, opening images, files etc. from unknown sources can be hazardous and they may contain viruses and/or inappropriate content.
Do make sure that your child understands that he/she should not rely on anything or anyone on the internet.
Teach children that they should inform their parent, teacher or caregiver about anything or anyone that makes them feel uncomfortable, worried or afraid online. Keeping our children informed and cautious is the only way to make them ready for the internet world and let their online experience be safe and fulfilling.
