No matter how long you manage to hold them off, at some point, your kids will have their own electronic devices, and they’ll use those devices to communicate with others. First with friends and family, but eventually with strangers, too.
Educating our kids about internet safety is an important and ongoing part of keeping them safe, but parents also have to stay up to date on the latest apps they may be using. Because even if we’re not, predators are.
Here are the apps on the list:
- Calculator% (and many other calculator apps that hide photos, videos and other files)
- Hot or Not
There are almost certainly more where these came from, but being aware of what apps your kids are using—and how they’re using them—is an important part of keeping them safe from predators.
