I saw this article in The Age today (Sunday Feb 7th) that really made me think about how much more easily kids today can gain easy access to damaging material - perhaps causing lifelong damage, as described in this article.
The SMH.com.au article talks about how just one early contact with pornographic material (through the Playboy magazine) opened a child's eyes - far to early - to adult concepts and sexuality. This was at a point where the child was too young to understand that what she saw was not representative of healthy male/female relationships.
Back then, it was not quite so easy for a child to gain access to pornographic material, so less came in contact with such damaging material at an early age.
These days, it can be as simple as opening their Safari app on an iPod Touch, iPad or iPhone - or perhaps on mum and dad's computer - and typing in some words.
Perhaps these words have been heard and not understood at school. Our kids are tech savvy at a young age, and can easily Google to gain the answers to questions they don't want to ask someone else.
What has been seen cannot be unseen. This article really rams home this reality and the potential lifelong impacts of what has been seen at a too-young age.
At iTandCoffee, we are passionate about educating parents about how to keep kids safe on Apple technology - iPads, iPhones, iPod Touches and Macs. We want to close that 'adult content' gate before the horse bolts - because it is too late then.
The 'Keeping kids safe on iPads, iPhones and iPod Touches' class is run on a regular basis at iTandCoffee (at 34 High St Glen Iris, Vic) and is next scheduled for Wednesday February 10th, 10am-12pm.
If you have not set up parental controls on your child's device, please come along and find out how easy it is to protect your own child, and any other children that might also use your family's device/s.
