Whether you are riding a metro or walking through a crowded street you are certain to find teenagers strolling by absent-mindedly, their faces a ghastly white behind lit phone screens.
According to the latest research by CNN, teenagers are spending a ‘mind boggling’ almost 9 hours a day using media whereas tweens are estimated to spend up to 6 hours, and check social media sites over a hundred times a day!
Crazy! isn’t it?
Not only this, but children are slacking off in studies and homework due to their excessive obsession with Facebook and Whatsapp.
Do I really need to monitor my son’s or daughter’s phone?
The answer is yes, you do. Many people argue that it’s an invasion of kid’s privacy. I would really think of it as securing my Childs privacy rather than breaching it, considering the stats in question with regards to teenage privacy and online predators nowadays.
Approximate 24% of teens and 33% of college age students are reportedly involved in sexting – sending nude messages.
A rough translation of these percentages to 1 in 20 teens being involved in sexting. Those who aren’t involved in sexting are viewing explicit and graphic content while surfing the web which can have drastic sexual and mental consequences later on in their adult life, if not intervened with.
Moreover, the rise of sexual predators online is increasing day by day and younger adults and teens are very susceptible to them due to the excessive use and trust in social media. The use of exploiting and blackmailing teens due to sexting is on a high, with intimate photo leaks causing humiliation and social awkwardness for many teens.
How do I protect my child from all the nuances of social media?
You can monitor your son’s or daughter’s phone if you have physical access to it, by just going through their text messages and browser history when they are asleep or have left the phone lying around.
However, the key problem in this is the fact that teens barely ever leave their phones unattended nowadays, and always have them password protected. In such circumstances, I personally recommend using parental control app to monitor the text messages and social media addiction on phones without them knowing.
These do not require you to sneak into your kids’ phone or have a fear each time you’re trying to do your parental monitoring right!
