Alcohol and drugs are is difficult to control as your children become teenagers, but there are organizations set up to assist parents in case that gets out of hand. The internet, however, is not as simple. Our children do require access, and if used correctly, be highly beneficial. As parents, the rules are unclear. And if you are not technologically savvy, how would you go about monitoring their access to the internet. Desktops, laptops, tablets, or mobile devices. You have come to the right place; this is our very first blog about technology and parenting. We discuss a few focus topics you can consider and implement an excellent policy in your household to protect your children to access the internet.
Desktops help protect children on the internet
This may be difficult to digest, but hear us out. Especially in your home, laptops are for parents. You can install the best parenting control software in the market, and there is a YouTube video on how to bypass it. Any laptop with Windows or macOS installed should only be made available in a shared living space.
Desktops are the perfect solution since it is immovable if set up correctly. Installing a desktop in a study space or the corner of the living room would discourage risky behaviours. Risky behaviours in our part are not necessarily pornographic websites; what we are more concerned with is the dark web. It is relatively easy to get a start on accessing the dark web using Tor Browser. And from this browser, they may be able to gain access to drugs, weapons and worst of all, other hackers.
