There has been a lot in the print media and on radio lately about what children are exposed to in terms of cell phones, the Internet and music. Children, especially young teens are easily influenced and this can be to their detriment. What strategies can parents and care-givers put in place to ensure that their children, and others, are safe from harm and harmful influences? Does talking help? Does knowing what kids are doing/seeing/hearing help? At what point does privacy stop and responsibility begin? Is there a way of helping them manage the technological environment and discern between good and bad influences?  What happens if both parents are at work? What happens in a child-headed family? Who provides the compass that gives direction between right and wrong? Is it the responsibility of the home? The school?

Lets have a discussion around what we can do to protect our children - in specific, what can we do with regards to the risks that access to technology introduces.

You know, the problem is the fact that technology advances rapidly, and many technological devices are invented, like the cellphones with upgraded features. now the parents buys their children this cell phones, and their children get an access to the internet via their cell phones, and this is where the problem broadens, because parents can try to set rules for surfing the internet on the computer. but now the children can surf the internet on their cell phones, and the parents have no control on how should their children use their phones and for what purposes. in actual fact protecting the children not to be exposed to unwanted things is a very difficult thing.
