It is natural for parents to want to protect their children from the harsh realities of the world. However, children hear about things whether we want them to or not. Although you may think that your child is better off not knowing about bad news, it was likely discussed on the school bus, the playground, or in a variety of other places and chances are, the information your child heard is at least a little bit inaccurate or exaggerated.
There are benefits to online social networking: your child can connect with their classmates, learn more about their community, and even join great causes around the world. However, there are also potential challenges that every parent must prepare for.
The variety and constantly changing nature of online social networking can be overwhelming to anyone; this is especially true for parents because they are responsible for ensuring the safety of their children.
There is nothing more nerve-wracking than leaving your precious little one in someone else’s care, particularly if you are doing so for the first time or with a new babysitter.
