The internet is a very interesting place you can learn on it, you can get research for a project, and also you can connect with family and friends. But the internet can also be a very dangerous place because the websites on the internet can lead kids into inappropriate websites also posts online can have lasting effects. But what do u think is it safe for us?
Let’s start off with the inappropriate websites, well you never know what could be on that website. It could be inappropriate pictures, videos, ads and a lot more. Kids can be easily lured into that type of thing for example, if the child has a laptop in his or her room and has seen something on the television and searches for that subject and it ends up being a subject that was inappropriate and him or her ends up getting caught in the act and the parents miss understand what he or she was up to.
Now being lured into a dangerous situation that is also called “stranger danger” he or she has access to the internet and gives out personal information then predators hunt him or her down and him or her ends up being missing because of the information that was given on the accessible laptop or computer. Example, a website that I have heard about can end up getting you into this type of situation so you can never be too sure about those certain type of website.
Last but not least whatever you have posted online can have a effects later in your life, example you could have a hard time trying to get a job because of what you have done. you could end up not being trusted in life just to do the little things that his or her parents once trusted him or her to do. Such as not being allowed to stay home alone, not being able to use the laptop or the computer for simple little things because his or her parents don’t trust him or her to go on the computer or laptop anymore.
I hope that you realize that the internet can be very helpful place but also a very dangerous place. Remember that if you ever end up getting into one of these things think of the effects that can happen which are inappropriate websites, dangerous situations, and also posts have lasting effects. Please keep the message internet safety in your mind when you’re on the computer or the laptop!Because , Internet : Is It Really Safe ?
