Question

How can parents have better knowledge of Internet Safety than their children?

It's Safer Internet Day! but are you concerned about your child being exposed to inappropriate Internet content? Over the last year more than 75 per cent of parents bought their children an electronic device with Internet access, but only 45 per cent actually use parental controls to protect them. How can you make sure your connected kids are kept safe online? Where can parents learn about e-Safety?

Question

Is it justified to chip and track children for safety?

While parents can't be with their kids 24 hours a day, there's plenty of technology around that can track their children's every move without their knowing it.The second a kid isn't where he's supposed to be, a massive alert goes off, and the kid can be tracked down immediately. But is this technology an invasion of privacy? How much surveillance is justified? Is the world really such a dangerous place for these kids?

Question

Can you block gambling games on Xbox?

My 11-year-old has an Xbox 360 and we have set the parental controls so that we need to put in our password (which he does not know) in order to add friends. We have also set it so that he cannot access 15 or 18 games. But I notice he has a poker game in his downloads. I will speak to him about this, of course, but does anyone know how to set the controls to limit the *type* of game as well as the age rating? I could only find space to add games that he could use outside of his content restrictions, not the other way round. Thanks!

Question

How do I punish my 12 year old for turning off the Internet restrictions?

I discovered that my 12 year old daughter has easily bypassed the net filters that I'd put in place to keep her safe on the Internet. There are loads and loads of very real dangers out there online and I'm worried about what is happening. My daughter is not allowed unmonitored access on the internet but it seems that my computing skills are far inferior to hers. Although she said she just turned off the parental controls once to watch a Youtube video, should I trust her? How can I make sure that she is completely safe? Could my daughter get past my security whenever she wants?

Question

Should the Government Be involved in Verifying Minors' Age Online?

The government is involved in mandating and monitoring compliance with age limits for all kids of things, but is mostly hands off when it comes to the internet (background: more here http://bit.ly/1apKnul). Could a system work where the government issues an Internet License, akin to a drivers' license?

How to monitor my son's Facebook account without his knowing?

My son is 14 and I am very worried about what is going on behind my back. I admit that I've made the conscious decision to allow him to use Facebook, but how can I keep an eye on his internet activity and, more importantly, keep him safe? Should a parent demand that a 14-year-old child give them his Facebook account passwords?

Question

Should I follow my teen on Tumblr?

I vaguely knew that my teen was getting into Tumblr, but I didn't know she had a site of her own, with hundreds of posts dating back months. So now I've found it, do I read it, or steer well clear? Is this the modern day equivalent of the teenage diary, or is it OK to read since it's published in a public format? I just had a quick glance and she's posting on there now when she's supposed to be doing homework.

What should parents know about teen trend Snapchat?

Have you been hearing about the cool app Snapchat? Although originally it was designed for adults, Snapchat is gaining popularity among teens and tweens. It allows users to send pictures and videos that only last a few seconds before disappearing. But are really Snapchat photos deleted? Is the app safe for kids? How can parents monitor it?

Question

Does your child use Instant Messaging?

I'm writing an article about IM and was just interested in other parents' experiences. It seems futile to try and stop your child using BBM, WhatsApp, Snapchat or whatever is their instant message app of choice, so how can we help them to manage it? What advice should we give? (assuming they'll listen) Do you monitor your child's messages or trust them to get on with it?
