Ichat adult video
Lets hope that your child’s friends haven’t friended any strangers, that your child’s friends also protect and hide their friends lists, hide their posts and pictures from the public, and that they don’t share your child’s posts after making a nasty comment on it, or changing posts or pictures with photoshop type software.
Kids find it hard enough to negotiate the complex social issues in real life, why allow them to be part of Adult/Teen online communities before they are mature enough to deal with the larger public repercussions of online exposure that social media encourages.
They unitedly said ok, we are all taking you off Facebook, Kik Messenger and Instagram.
We will allow you to use, limited SMS, Skype, i Chat and perhaps one of the Kid safe social media sites.
My concern with this harm minimisation approach is this…
Whilst this film sends a strong positive message about not over sharing and friending strangers, and setting privacy settings.
No boundaries, because they will only do it anyway.
” CEOPs Thinkuknow education programme that helps children to understand what constitutes personal information.
The assembly enables children to understand that they need to be just as protective of their personal information online, as they are in the real world.
It also directs where to go and what to do if children are worried about any of the issues covered.” Today I was alerted to this video doing the rounds on Facebook, I do think parents and kids should watch it, it certainly might open a few eyes.
I think this cyber safety film from CEOPS is a valiant attempt to get parents and kids to understand they need to take as much care with their online safety as they do with their offline safety. But whilst there are some very good points made in this film, I’m concerned about part of it’s message, that I, and many other parents who commented on Facebook interpreted as “its ok for a 10 year old to be on a Facebook Like social media site, as long as they do it safely”.
