Five-year-olds have to be given lessons on the safety use of internet. This has to be done because children are exposed to online dangers every day.
There are assemblies in each of the UK primary schools giving children information about the digital age and the dangers it hides.
Claire Lilley, of the NSPCC, said: “We are facing an e-safety time bomb.”
Some 3,745 calls were received last year at ChildLine reporting about abuse via internet and mobile phones.
The cases of children pornography have increases with about 70%.
The NSPCC warns that not only parents but also schools need to struggle with the problem.
It appeals on lessons in every school about the usage of internet, giving young people tips on their safety online surfing.
Its another demand is that internet providers should provide easy systems which give parents the possibility to install filters and online blocks at home.
Experts, on the other hand, talk against blanket filtering of the internet. Phil Bradley, of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals, said that this filtering may have unintended consequences. According to him the main factor which may influence children are their parents and the advice they give them.
.”When it comes to the internet… children need to learn how to use it safely and how to differentiate the good from the bad.”
“Just as parents would teach their children to cross the road safely, they should also help them learn how to stay safe online.
Internet can be a dangerous place indeed. In addition your employees might not be so dangerously affected as the children, however they can be easily distracted. That`s why we recommend our Computer E-mail and Internet Usage Policy Template
