Perhaps the most significant development of the 21st century is the internet; a convoluted yet amazingly intricate sprawl that has turned the world into a Global Village by connecting individuals from all walks of life from all around the world.

It has made our lives a thousand times easier and provided us invaluable opportunities with regards to academics, business, news, social media, journalism and a whole lot more.

However, it is a fact that nothing as powerful and convenient as the internet can exist without drastic downsides. The advent of the internet has led to the creation of the hacker community, committed to breaking and entering; in the virtual sense of the word.

There are also malicious software products otherwise known as viruses dominating the web, that can infect your computer if you accidentally click on the wrong link and so open the door for the hackers and make them a clear way of entering your device and access your files and resources. But perhaps the most damaging aspect is the indecent content being spewed in all directions, that makes it impossible for your kids to tinker with this technology.

Here are a few ways you can adopt to minimize their exposure to this:

Fortunately, you have the capability to place certain virtual restrictions that only you can unblock. Just like with cable TV, your internet service provider may be able to block sites that contain problematic content for the young ones.

Sites like YouTube already have certain limitations in place where content for adults requires proper registration or a sign-up to be viewed. However, these can easily be bypassed if the child knows how to create fake profiles.
