Who Are Your Kids Talking To Online?

Studies have shown that:

1 out of 4 children were sent pictures of people who were naked or having sex?

1 out of 5 children were solicited for sex on the Internet

50% of people have made phone calls with someone the chatted with online.

Do you know what strangers are saying to your kids?

What can you do to protect your children from unscrupulous people in the Internet?

Today's children, and specially teens, spend more time on the computer. Even though the Internet is nowadays the primary source of communication for them, it is also a dangerous place.

There are some unscrupulous people out there that would go to any extent to engage in indecent conversations and relationships with your children.

A study done with 1,200 teenagers revealed that 30% had been sexually harassed online and about 50% had conducted cyber love affairs, visited porn sites and read their parents' e-mails.

Curiosity can be very dangerous. Even though this is normal at their age, curiosity can lead to giving out personal information such as names, addresses, phone numbers, school names and more.

Since the other person talking to your kids cannot be seen, a 55-year old can pose as a 16-year old and win your kid's trust very easily.

I know that we, as parents, are not always watching what our kids are doing online but it's important to know the options we have to protect our children and avoid major problems.

There are blocking softwares that you can purchase to filter web sites containing sex, sexuality and other adult sites. You can also get a spy software that will let you know everything your kids are doing online.

These softwares will monitor instant messages, chats, emails, web site URLs and much more. Not only do you see what your child types online but what is said back as well. They monitor both incoming and outgoing activity. Additionally, your kids will not be able to get around the software programs by clearing cache or history because they get everything as it happens, including passwords.

These software programs run in total secrecy, and are very hard to find in the computer. They will not slow down your computer, or do anything noticeable to the user. In order to see the recorded information, all you do is enter your secret password and they will activate?but only for you.

These programs do not appear in the START menu, nor will they appear in the CTR-ALT-DEL Task Manager.
