Balancing Privacy and Safety for Children on the Internet
Mar 17 2023
Many parents struggle with finding the right balance between granting their children privacy on the internet and monitoring their online activities to ensure their safety. The Vigilant Parent Initiative Program, created by former Commander Captain Brian Spears, aims to educate parents about digital responsibility and online safety for their children, particularly those aged 10 to 12. The program emphasizes the importance of having open communication with children and being aware of their online activities, including knowing their device passwords. The program is crucial in light of the alarming number of children who fall victim to online predators, as highlighted by the tragic stories of Ryan and Pauline. By educating parents and encouraging them to have conversations with their children, the Vigilant Parent Initiative Program could potentially save lives.
