Risks By Technology
Sometimes parents worry that their kids know more about the Internet and computers than their parents or teachers. If that's the case in your home, don't despair. You can use this as an opportunity to turn the tables by having your child teach you a thing or two about the Internet -- where they like to go and what they like to do online, for example. Don't hesitate to ask your child to talk with you about what's good and not so good about their Internet experience. Different technologies offer different kinds of risks and benefits to teens and children using the Internet. Here's a breakdown of technologies your child may use, and some suggestions for risk management.
