Protecting Children from Porn on the Internet

It’s a reality that porn is all over the Internet, and it can be hard to avoid. When you have growing children in the house, you want to try to protect them from the harm that porn can cause them. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to prevent children from gaining access to porn on the Internet.

One basic way you can try to protect a child from viewing porn on the Internet is to educate him or her and teach him or her safe browsing habits. Unfortunately, many children who are exposed to porn are exposed to porn by strangers who are met in Internet chat rooms, send unsolicited messages to minors or who post pictures on public forums. Some of these people get a kick out of exposing young minds to taboos and feel no remorse towards corrupting the youth of the nation. By teaching your child not to give out personal information, not to talk to strangers online and to inform you if they receive any unwanted messages, you can at least protect your child from receiving porn from someone else.

Being vigilant against strangers introducing your child to porn is one thing, but stopping a child from seeking out porn is another thing entirely. However, there is a solution to this problem. Another really good way to protect children from porn on the Internet is to find a kid-friendly browser or a filter. Certain Internet companies have created browsers and search engines for children that make it impossible for them to search for porn.

And just because you shut down access to porn in your house doesn’t mean that your child can’t go anywhere else to get it. Talk to the parents of your child’s friends to see if they are employing filter or kid-friendly software on their home computers. Sometimes it really does take a village to raise a child. A concerted effort from a few concerned parents can go a long way towards keeping your children away from porn.

You’ll also want to take into consideration what your response will be if you catch your child viewing porn on the Internet. Scaring them straight might make them feel as if they cannot come to you with problems or concerns in the future. Being honest with your children and limiting their access to porn in a safe, controlled way might be the best way you can protect them.
