We cannot deny the fact that the internet is also something our kids need not only to enrich their minds with the needed information for their education, but also for boosting their social skills, especially now when there is Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram where they can start mingling, interacting, and communicating with the people that they know, and even the people that they just met online.
However, this does not mean that the internet cannot be harmful to our kids. This is because of the many risks involved when you meet a stranger online. Cyber bullying is also another issue, which can affect your child in so many ways.
As parents, you have to prepare your child for such issues when they start using the internet. You have to guide them well, and let them know that the internet is both useful for them and at the same time, will put them at risk if they are not very careful. Teaching your child proper usage of the internet is vital, because if not, your child’s mind can be corrupted easily, which you do not want to happen at an early stage. One way to do this is to monitor your child’s internet usage to make sure that he or she is just visiting sites that are child friendly, and engaging with people whom you think is not going to put them at risk.
But with today’s busy world, many parents cannot monitor their child anymore when using the internet because they have to work. Good thing there are software programs parents can use, so that they can monitor their child’s internet usage even when they are away from home.
An example is Myspy. This is a program that parents can install in their kids’ tablets or even smartphones where most kids browse the internet nowadays. This program can be installed without the knowledge of your child, so that you can see the actual websites your child is browsing, the people he is engaging with in his social media websites, and even read emails or text messages to and from the child’s mobile phone. All of the reports are easily monitored in an online account where moms or dads can access wherever they are. They can also take action like blocking websites or text messages, if they feel that this activity is going to cause harm to their child.
The Myspy program is just one of the many child software programs that parents can use in order to monitor their children’s usage of the internet even if they can’t be at home physically.
The development of such program brought so many benefits to busy parents. Now, they do not have to worry anymore when their child is using the internet, because everything is monitored in real time. Parents can purchase software programs like this in the internet through a downloadable format. The program is not that expensive too; a very small investment that will ensure your child’s safety, even when you are not at home.
