I ran across this quote on an Internet safety site and I found myself saying ” what are you stupid or what” Here it is and I will explain.
Parents need to understand that the greatest risk our children face online is being denied access. The Internet is essential to our children’s education, future careers and lives. But even the most experienced Internet user doesn’t understand how children use the Internet and how to help them have a safer and more enjoyable surfing experience.
I’m sorry I don’t get it the greatest danger they face online is being grated to much access. The same thinking would lead you to say, don’t stop your kids from drinking or smoking for this will cause grave danger to them. Bringing up children in the day and age we live in is a BATTLE.
There are those that would like nothing more than to destroy your unsuspecting innocent children. The Internet is a place of good and evil it is a place that must be monitored and yes if need be cut off from your children. Please don’t fall into the trap of these so called educators who would say “Don’t keep a tight lease on your kids, trust them and allow them to explore for if you don’t you will push them away.”
HOGWASH Make sure you parent them this means lead, guide and yes saying NO when needed. Do the research and educate yourself in regards to protecting your family from the dangers of the Internet.

Please do not fall for this it is your God giving responsibility to mold and protect your children.
