With the increasing use of the Internet, it becomes even more important and difficult for parents to control their children’s browsing habits. For the last two years, children have been taking their lessons online, so parents have to leave them to the machines. We don’t know what our children are surfing on the Internet or what they are facing, and that can be dangerous. The main problem today is the overflow of information on the web. Also, there is no age requirement to visit a website. All you get is a checkbox asking if you are 18 or not. All information is freely available to everyone and this is alarming.
